Mayor’s List of Recyclables and Compostables
The Mayor’s List of Recyclables and Compostables is a requirement of the Sustainable Solid Waste Management Amendment Act of 2014. The purpose is to provide a single comprehensive list of recyclable and compostable materials for DC residents and businesses.
 
Effective Date and Relationship to Existing Requirements
