Senate Bill 1383

In September 2016, Governor Brown signed into law SB 1383, establishing methane emissions reduction targets in a statewide effort to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP) in various sectors of California's economy. The targets must:

  • Reduce organic waste disposal 50% by 2020 and 75% by 2025.
  • Rescue at least 20% of currently disposed surplus food by 2025.

Effective January 1, 2022, all California residences and businesses will be required to separate organic waste from other trash and non-organic recyclables and participate in an organics collection program. The City of Kingsburg, in partnership with Mid Valley Disposal, is working  to provide programs for residents and businesses to comply with the requirements of this legislation.
