SB 1383 Food and Yard Waste Resources
CalRecycle has launched new webpages to explain SB 1383, the state’s new food and yard waste recycling law. The law sets targets to:
- Cut organic waste disposal 75% by 2025
- Send at least 20% of surplus, still fresh food to Californians in need by 2025.
SB 343: Accurate Recycling Labels
Increasing recycling in California first requires accurate labels on recyclables. The law outlaws manufacturers and others from selling products or packaging labeled as recyclable unless the items are regularly collected and processed for recycling in the state.
CalEPA Enforcement Statement
CalEPA will continue to respond, investigate, and – when necessary – take action on complaints related to environmental non-compliance. CalEPA will also fill any enforcement gaps left by the U.S. EPA’s decision to reduce environmental oversight. We will also maintain our capacity to respond to emergencies.
