Organics Recycling

Beginning January 1, 2022, CalRecycle Senate Bill (SB) 1383 will require all residents, businesses, and multi-family properties in California to recycle all organic waste, including food waste, paper, cardboard, yard materials.

SB 1383 is a state law aimed at reducing emissions by diverting the amount of organic waste sent to landfills and recovering edible food statewide that would otherwise be sent to landfills. Food waste is the second largest contributor of organic waste in landfills. When organic material is landfilled, it decomposes and produces methane, a potent greenhouse gas (GHG).
