Welcome to BOMA San Francisco

Refuse Separation Legislation Briefing

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors recently approved the Refuse Separation Ordinance (No. 180646). The ordinance requires that, effective July 1, 2019, Large Refuse Generators (LRG) have their refuse audited at least every three years to assess compliance with the Mandatory Recycling and Composting Ordinance. If a property fails an audit and is found to have contamination above set limits in any of their three streams of refuse (recyclables, compostables and trash) the Refuse Separation Ordinance requires them to engage the services of a Zero Waste Facilitator.

Large Volume Generators are defined as any account with a roll-off compactor or at least 40 cubic yards of refuse service per week.  Refuse service includes all hauler-serviced collection bins containing recyclables, compostables and trash.

BOMA has partnered with Recology and the Department of the Environment to provide an informational briefing to explain the new ordinance and to provide the tools and resources for properties to prepare for the goal of achieving compliance.  We strongly encourage any properties covered by this ordinance to attend this important briefing.

The briefing is free of charge but reservations are required.  Continental breakfast will be provided.
