Why is this necessary?

All California cities, counties, businesses and residents are required to meet the SB 1383 mandate to reduce organic waste and thereby reduce emissions state wide. Landfill gas created by decomposing organic wastes is a significant source of methane that contributes to climate change. Despite the state’s robust and traditional recycling infrastructure, organic materials (yard trimmings, food scripts and soiled paper) make up 41% of the remaining waste stream. Redirecting these resources to composting operations will save landfill space, reduce emissions, and restore soils.
