This notice indicates that the SB 1383 regulations, which seek to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from organic waste, are final and set to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2022. The final regulations text are available online
To assist with the imminent implementation of SB 1383 regulations, CalRecycle continues to publish education and outreach tools. Specifically, CalRecycle created a series of model tools, including a model franchise agreement
, model mandatory organic waste disposal reduction ordinance
, model procurement policy
, and model edible food recovery agreement
. These tools are highly customizable, allowing for consideration of an individual jurisdiction’s particular needs or circumstances.
In addition to these model tools, CalRecycle has provided other education and outreach materials. These materials include an overview of SB 1383’s Organic Waste Reduction Requirements through PowerPoint
, and video
format. CalRecycle’s SB 1383 webpage
also provides case studies on franchise agreements, enforcement ordinances, edible food, and procurement. Additionally, CalRecycle recently released a new guidance document
outlining the proposed compliance process.
Cal Cities will continue to work with CalRecycle to distribute information related to SB 1383 to our member cities. For additional information, please visit CalRecycle’s Short-Lived Climate Pollutants webpage
