The Sierra Conservation Project, Inc. and Town of Mammoth Lakes are pleased to announce the expansion of the current condominium, commercial and recreational area recycling programs in the Town of Mammoth Lakes.  

This long-standing and successful partnership between the Sierra Conservation Project and the Town resulted in the award of a substantial $108,000 CalRecycle grant to expand
successful recycling programs within Mammoth Lakes.

The Sierra Conservation Project
is working in partnership with the Town of Mammoth Lakes and the Department of Recourses Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) to provide an additional 30 bear-proof containers to the remaining Condominium complexes in town that currently don’t have a recycling program in place.  In addition, CalRecylcle grant funds will enable SCP to upgrade all commercial bear-proof containers at restaurants, bars and other business locations in town, including the enhancement and placement of recycling infrastructure in the Lakes Basin, and at key park locations in Mammoth Lakes, such as the Whitmore Recreation Area and Shady Rest Park.

AB 341 and What it Means for You!

A new State of California Bill (AB 341) directed by CalRecycle mandating commercial recycling within the State of California goes into effect July 1, 2012. The Town of Mammoth Lakes will be providing education and outreach to help the community comply with the new regulations.

The goal of AB 341 is to increase the statewide recycling rates to 75% by 2020. Starting July 1 2012, businesses and public entities that generate four cubic yards or more of waste per week and Multi-Family units of five or more will be required to recycle. The purpose of this new law is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by diverting commercial solid waste to recycling efforts and expand opportunities for additional recycling services and recycling manufacturing facilities in California.

Additional information provided by CalRecycle that addresses AB 341 can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions document.

The Town of Mammoth Lakes (TOML), Sierra Conservation Project (SCP) and Mammoth Disposal (MD) are taking active steps to assist businesses and multi-family residences to comply with the new regulations.

The following recycling programs are currently available within the TOML:
  • Commercial cardboard recycling
  • Restaurant and bar programs
  • Lodging and hospitality programs
  • Business recycling
  • Multi-family/Apartment recycling
  • Office recycling
  • Residential recycling
  • Aluminum, plastic, and glass
  • E-Waste
  • Used oil and batteries

Some of the benefits of recycling identified by CalRecycle are creating jobs in California, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, keeping valuable materials out of landfills, and creating a healthy environment for the community and future generations by recovering natural resources.

How the Multi-Family Recycling Program Works

The Sierra Conservation Project & Town of Mammoth Lakes are excited to announce the expansion of current condominium recycling programs in the Town of Mammoth Lakes.

SCP is working on a grant-funded project to deliver comprehensive recycling programs to condominium complexes in the Eastern Sierra. This joint effort between Sierra Conservation Project, The Town of Mammoth Lakes and CalRecycle will provide a unique opportunity for multi family residential locations to set up their facilities with professional and effective recycling infrastructure at no cost while supplies last.

How the program works…
SCP will provide costly bear proof recycling systems at no cost to local complexes.
Affordable program implementation allows complexes to reduce environmental impacts with no set up expenses. The Sierra Conservation Project will conduct a free on-site analysis of your complex. We will then create an implementation plan and deliver the recycling infrastructure needed to start an efficient and effective recycling program for your Mammoth Lakes location.
