SB 1383 Resources and Information


Required Organics Waste Diversion, SB 1383, will revolutionize how we dispose of organic materials in California by requiring organics waste recycling in nearly every jurisdiction.

The measure ultimately requires a 75 percent reduction of the level of statewide disposal of organic waste by 2025, based on levels from 2014. Additionally, programs to recover 20 percent of commercial edible food from disposal will need to be implemented.

Go2Zero Strategies has developed a number of resources to assist all stakeholders.

Prior to adopting or revising ordinances and contracts, make sure that the proposed changes will meet CalRecycle requirements by checking with your local representative.

All activities, including education, oversight, monitoring, enforcement, and citation mechanisms of property and business owners, organic waste generators, haulers, and commercial edible food generators must be in place by the deadlines.

Once you have identified program requirements that need to be updated or implemented, ensure adequate time fully to roll out the programs and ensure compliance.
