Serv-Wel Disposal & Recycling provides trash bins in many popular sizes for weekly trash service at your business. Santa Fe Springs, Montebello, Vernon, Torrance and Long Beach are the major areas we have business customers. In particular, Santa Fe Springs is where we do the most business, because it's where our business started in 1949. We also have a Franchise Agreement with the city to be able to service your business. What that means is that only Serv-Wel and 2 other companies are permitted to collect waste in Santa Fe Springs. In all the other cities we service, we have very competitive pricing and would love to get the chance to at least give you a quote. Give us a call and we can visit your facility for a free, no obligation evaluation of your waste stream. We can help recommend the correct trash bin size and pick-up frequency, and give guidance to help your business comply with California's AB341, AB1826, and SB1383. If you are dissatisfied with your current hauler, and would like help cancelling your contract with them, we can also help with that. Other trash haulers like to make it tricky to get out of their contract. We've seen all of them and know exactly where to look, to find out what is required to cancel. Our salesmen can schedule a call in the future, to send your cancellation letter at the right time to help you leave that company that misses pick ups, charges you extra fees, or raised their prices way over what is fair.
AB 341 - Mandatory Commercial & Multi-Family Complex Recycling
AB 341 In October of 2001, Assembly Bill (AB) 341 set a 75% recycling goal for California by the year 2020. This law mandates that all Commercial businesses and public entities that generate four cubic yards or more of solid waste per week, and multi-family complexes with five units or more, are subject to mandatory recycling and required to do one of the following: 1) Separate recyclable materials from the solid waste that are discarded and either self-haul or arrange for separate collection of the recyclables: or 2) Subscribe to a service that includes mixed waste processing that provides diversion results comparable to source separation.
AB 1826 - Mandatory Commercial Organics Recycling
AB 1826 In October of 2014, Governor Brown signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 1826 requiring all businesses, including multi-family complexes, to recycle their organic* waste that are landfill bound. The full scope takes 5 years to implement by first targeting the largest waste generators. The implementation schedule for Businesses and multi-family complexes to have an organics recycling program in place is as follows: * April 1, 2016: Businesses and multi-family complexes generating 8 cubic-yards per week of organic waste * January 1, 2017: Businesses and multi-family complexes generating 4 cubic-yards per week of organic waste * January 1, 2019: Businesses and multi-family complexes generating 4 cubic-yards per week of solid waste * April 1, 2016: Businesses and multi-family complexes generating 8 cubic-yards per week of organic waste * January 1, 2017: Businesses and multi-family complexes generating 4 cubic-yards per week of organic waste * January 1, 2019: Businesses and multi-family complexes generating 4 cubic-yards per week of solid waste * Organic waste includes food waste, green waste, landscape and prunin waste, nonhazardous wood waste, and food-soiled paper waste that is mixed with food waste.

SB 1383 forces waste generators (businesses, restaurants, supermarkets, ect.) and local governments to keep organic materials from being sent to landfills. What this means for us...
Jurisdictions(Cities) must provide collection service automatically to all generators (also known as universal service). At this time, most of the state’s jurisdictions already have residential organics collection service for green waste, and many are in the process of adding food waste collection service (often commingled in the same cart) to help the state meet SB 1383’s organics diversion benchmarks.
All organic waste generators, both residents and businesses, as well as non-local entities and local education agencies, are required to participate in organic material collection programs.
Jurisdictions must adopt enforceable ordinances to ensure that all residential and commercial generators are compliant. Penalties for noncompliance can be assessed by CalRecycle beginning in 2022.
Jurisdictions must procure eligible recovered organic waste products. Jurisdictions can comply with the requirements through the procurement and use of compost, mulch, and various forms of bioenergy derived from recycling organic waste.
Find A Bin
If you choose a bin for servicing your business, you will receive at least once a week dumps and they have an 800lb load capacity. The larger roll off option can be set for a weekly or on call service and can handle up to 10 tons. Please always remember to only fill up to the top of the walls. It's unsafe for anyone to handle these containers when trash is loaded over the top. Thank you
