Organic Waste Recycling - SB 1383 Implementation

SB 1383 (Lara, 2016)

In 2016, the state enacted new and ambitious organic waste diversion goals as part of the strategy to reduce methane emissions. SB 1383 (Lara, 2016) sets state targets to divert from landfills 50% of organic waste below 2014 levels by 2020 and 75% by 2025. In order to successfully achieve these goals, local programs will require both new collection programs and new substantial investment in infrastructure, including compost facilities.
