A new organics and recycling law goes into effect January 2022

A new California State law, SB 1383, aims to keep food and other compostable materials (“organics”) out of landfills to reduce emissions that contribute to climate change. Under the law:

  • Edible food currently thrown away must be recovered and donated for people to eat,
  • The remaining organics must be collected for composting,
  • Recyclables must also be kept out of landfills.

Starting January 2022, SB 1383 regulations will be implemented in Unincorporated Contra Costa County under the Organic Waste Disposal Reduction Ordinance.

Learn more at: cccrecycle.org/SB1383

Who is affected by the new law?

The new law affects all generators of organic waste, including:

  • Businesses, institutions, and non-profit organizations
  • Multifamily property owners or managers of buildings with 5 or more units
  • Residents in single-family homes, apartments, and condos
  • Schools (public and private)
  • Government agencies, such as state agencies and park districts
