CALIFORNIA TO REQUIRE FOOD WASTE COMPOSTING TO LOWER EMISSIONS & COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE
Beginning January 2022, California’s short lived climate pollutant law (SB 1383) requires that every home, apartment complex, and commercial business in California collect their food waste, food-soiled paper, and yard waste separately from all other waste.
SB 1383 calls on the state’s 40 million people to reduce landfill methane emissions by achieving a 75% reduction in organic waste disposal by 2025 (compared to 2014 levels), and take action to make sure that at least 20% of currently disposed of edible food is redirected to Californians who don’t have enough to eat.
