What is SB 1383?

Starting in 2022, Cities and Counties will need to provide organic waste collection services to all residents and businesses and recycle these organic materials under California Senate Bill (SB) 1383. This bill sets goals to reduce the disposal of organic waste in landfills, including green waste, wood waste, food waste, and fibers such as paper and carboard. The purpose of this bill is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as methane, and address food insecurity in California. One aspect of this law requires kitchen food scraps to be separated from the rest of the trash and composted. City governments, along with their contracted trash haulers, are required to put a system into place for collecting and reducing the amount of organic waste that ends up in our landfills. California has a 75 percent organic waste diversion goal by 2025.
