  2. The report must be submitted to with the subject line: Initial Jurisdiction Report.
  3. Ordinances or enforceable mechanisms should be attached separately from the report (in the same email).

a. The ordinances to submit are SB 1383 enforceable mechanisms or ordinances that address the regulatory requirements, such as collection, edible food, and mulch.
b. Jurisdictions may also have ordinances for CALGreen, MWELO, or a procurement policy that they will use to enforce on vendors.

Jurisdiction Annual Reporting

Each jurisdiction shall report the items identified in 14 CCR Section 18994.2, regarding the implementation of the following:

  • Organic waste collection
  • Contamination monitoring
  • Waivers
  • Education and outreach
  • Hauler oversight
  • Edible food recovery
  • Procurement
  • CALGreen Building Standards and Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance
  • Capacity planning
  • Compliance

  • For AB 939 (SRRE and HHWE) report on 2021 status
  • For MCR and MORe report on the most current data through June 2022
  • For SB 1383 report on implementation from January 1, 2022, through June 30, 2022. Note: If there is no data yet for programs, such as procurement or edible food, then put zero (0) for data fields and include an explanation in the notes field.

On or before August 1, 2023, and on or before August 1 each year thereafter, a jurisdiction shall report for the period covering the entire previous calendar year.

For example: By August 1, 2024, submit the report for the 2023 calendar year of January 1, 2023, through December 31, 2023.
