CalRecycle recently released these draft model tools to assist jurisdictions and stakeholders with the imminent implementation of SB 1383 regulations, which seek to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from organic waste. The model tools are drafts until the Office of Administrative Law approves the SB 1383 regulations.
Webinar topics included:
- Overview of the Model Tools
- Model Franchise Agreement
- Model Mandatory Organic Waste Disposal Reduction Ordinance
- Model Procurement Policy
- Model Edible Food Recovery Agreement
More information about the model tools can be found on CalRecycle’s website
. These tools are highly customizable for an individual jurisdiction’s particular needs or circumstances.
Even though the SB 1383 regulations do not go into effect until Jan. 1, 2022, CalRecyle recommends jurisdictions begin planning now. To assist with this effort, CalRecycle continues to publish resources to provide jurisdictions with education and outreach tools. The League will continue to work with CalRecycle to distribute information related to SB 1383 to our member cities.
Recordings of the webinars will be linked to this article as they become available.
