The City of Ventura is excited to offer our new Food Waste Recycling Program! This effort will help comply with state law, Senate Bill 1383 (insert link: https://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/organics/slcp), which aims to reduce the amount of organic material sent to the landfill and reduce our environmental footprint. Learn more about SB 1383.
Starting January 1, 2022, residents must place all food waste, including meat, dairy, bread, produce, and coffee grounds, in a bag, tie it up, and add it to the existing yard waste cart. Apartment residents should place their bagged food waste in the food waste container. Once at the recycling facility, food waste will be separated from yard waste and composted into soil products.
