Assembly Bill 939
California Integrated Waste Management Act
This state law requires each jurisdiction in California to divert at least 50% of its waste stream away from landfills either through waste reduction, recycling or other means. AB 939 also established an integrated framework for program implementation, solid waste planning, and solid waste facility and landfill compliance.
