SB 1383: Organics Recycling Update
Last month, businesses were sent a letter about the new recycling and/or organics services coming their way. While rolling out the bins has taking a little longer than anticipated, they are coming!
Fortunately, residents have had organics since 2018. Those that do not have these services will receive a letter and be automatically enrolled in the coming months.
SB 1383 is a climate action bill aimed to reduce climate pollution and emissions from organic waste decomposition generated in landfills. By diverting organic waste, such as yard trimmings, food scraps, and compostable paper from the landfill and composting these materials instead, we are able to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create nutrient-rich soil amendment to add back to our lands and soils.
All customers will need to separate their organics and recyclable materials into the correct containers. Placing green waste or food waste into the trash and/ or recycling containers is prohibited. To view a list of acceptable items to place in the organics cart, click here or use our Waste Wizard to search for specific items and how to dispose of them.
