Business Recycling GuideThe County of San Bernardino produced a guide to assist businesses in establishing or expanding their business recycling. This guide provides business owners and management the tools to facilitate source reduction, reuse, recycling, business waste characterizations and other templates to sustain a recycling program along with other references and contacts. The guide allows a business to take ownership of their recycling program through methods and worksheets for planning, preparation, implementation and program maintenance.
The assessment is a free service to all businesses, non-profits and schools located in the unincorporated areas of San Bernardino County.

The San Bernardino
County Board of Supervisors recognizes that prosperity and economic
development cannot be achieved at the expense of our environment.
The County must strike a balance between development and
environmental stewardship to keep our economy strong and, at the
same time, protect our environment.
In August 2007, the Board of Supervisors launched Green County San Bernardino to spur the use of “green” technologies and building practices among residents, business owners and developers in the County.

What is Construction and Demolition? How do I recycle or reuse it?
Construction and Demolition (C&D) are materials generated in the construction and demolition of buildings, roads, home, tenant improvements, landscaping, hardscaping, and site clearing activities. This waste stream includes, but is not limited to: concrete, asphalt, gypsum, wood waste, glass, ferrous, and non-ferrous metals, red clay brick, corrugated cardboard, soils, trees, and shrubs.
Click on the guide to the left, for information on reducing, reusing, and recycling the volume of C & D materials at the source.

The Department of Public Works Solid Waste Management Division partnered with the California Integrated Waste Management Board to bring you
SBCountyMAX. This online database provides free classified listing service to help communities find markets for materials that would otherwise be discarded. Schools, non-profit organizations, and businesses and individuals can place available ads for materials that may be reusable or recyclable or wanted ads for items such as used equipment, supplies and office furniture.
If your business is not
located in unincorporated County of San Bernardino, assistance is still
available. The County along with sixteen other towns/cities formed the
Zero Waste Communities of San Bernardino County. Their offsite website
offers several contacts for those jurisdictions, along with waste
reducing tips and a reuse and recycling online guide, also found in the
Business Recycling Home Page
