Guide to Waste

SB 1383: State Organics Law

The goal of this project is to divert waste from landfills in compliance with SB 1383: State Organics Law. This law sets forth to:

  • reduce statewide disposal of organic waste by 50% by January 1, 2020 (based on 2014 levels)
  • reduce statewide disposal of organic waste by 75% by January 1, 2025
  • rescue at least 20% of currently disposed of edible food for human consumption by 2025

Waste Education Workshop Coming

Once this new system is implemented, we plan to host a workshop to provide waste education, specifically on the proper use and understanding of the 3-bin system. Check back here for updates on this workshop!
