Recycling Compliance Form

This form is for businesses located in the City of Sacramento only. Visit Assessor Parcel Viewer if you are unsure.

All businesses are required by State law to separate recyclables from their garbage for recycling. This compliance form must be filled out and approved to receive a physical space waiver or an alternative service verification.

Approved physical space waivers or alternative service verifications will be subject to an on-site inspection.

Approved physical space waivers and alternative service verifications may be revoked at any time. Revocation may be due to:

  • An inspection that demonstrates the business site has space for a recycling container.
  • An inspection that demonstrates alternative services requirements are not being met and/or there is no supporting documentation.
  • An inspection that demonstrates the business site misrepresented information in the form.
  • Changes to local or state regulations regarding recycling.

Select the recycling compliance option you are submitting for:

A Physical Space Waiver may be issued if your business site lacks adequate space for a recycling container. Supporting documents are required as evidence that your business does not have space for a 90-gallon cart, one of the smallest carts available. 90-gallon carts are approximately 27" wide x 36" deep x 45" high.

Upload photo(s) as evidence that you do not have space for a 64-gallon cart
