Organics Recycling--It's the Law

It’s no secret California has been working hard to reduce the amount of organic waste that goes to landfills, where it decomposes and generates greenhouse gas emissions.

In 2014, Governor Brown signed AB 1826 Chesbro (Chapter 727, Statutes of 2014), requiring that businesses recycle their organic waste.

Two years later, Brown signed SB 1383 (Lara, Chapter 395, Statutes of 2016), which requires, among other things, that the state reduce the amount of organic waste going to landfills by 75 percent by Jan. 1, 2025.

Here is a quick video CalRecycle created a while back to help get the word out to businesses in California. Feel free to share it!
