Mandatory Commercial Organic Recycling
Senate Bill 1383 (SB 1383) was signed into California law in 2016, establishing statewide methane emission reduction goals. Methane emissions resulting from the decomposition of organic waste in landfills are a significant source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions contributing to global climate change.

To reduce organic waste in landfills, SB 1383 has two main goals:

  1. Reduce the amount of organic material disposed in landfills by 75% by 2025.
  2. Donate 20% of edible food to organizations who help feed people in need.
This Bill expands upon the goals of AB 341: Mandatory Commercial Recycling and AB 1826: Mandatory Commercial Organics. However, SB 1383 is unique in that it impacts both residents and businesses. Learn more about how this legislation affects commercial businesses here.
