AB 1383 Compliance Tool

Residential Organics Waste Recycling |

SB 1383 will revolutionize
how we dispose of organic materials in California by requiring residential 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, jurisdictions will need to implement programs to recover 20 percent of commercial
edible food from disposal. A jurisdiction may designate a public or private entity to fulfill many
of its responsibilities, but the jurisdiction is ultimately
responsible for compliance with the requirements of SB 1383.

Next Steps
Remember that it can take many months to adopt these changes, so plan accordingly. 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 to fully roll-out the programs and ensure compliance. Programs must be in place by January 1, 2022. It is
important to get started early.If you need assistance, you can check the CalRecycle website for available templates. If you don’t have a consultant that
