Businesses Can Apply for an Organics Recycling Waiver by October 5

SB1383 Regs Newsflash

Beginning January 1, 2022, CalRecycle Senate Bill (SB) 1383 will require everyone in California to recycle all organic waste, including paper, cardboard, yard materials, food scraps, and food-soiled paper. 

California's Senate Bill 1383 is a state mandate to reduce the amount of organic waste sent to landfills and to recover 20% of 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). 

The following businesses are eligible for an exemption waiver for organics recycling requirements:

  • Businesses that generate at least 2 cubic yards of solid waste and less than 20 gallons of organic waste per week; or businesses that generate less than 2 cubic yards of solid waste and less than 10 gallons of organic waste per week.
  • Businesses that have no space on-site for additional containers. 
  • Businesses that utilize a landscaper to remove all green waste offsite. 

Waivers will be assessed for both food waste and green waste service needs to qualify for an exemption. Businesses must complete the exemption waiver by October 5, 2021, in order to qualify for an exemption. 

Complete the exemption waiver.
