1/1-1/14: New California Law Requires Organic Waste Recycling (Sacramento)

venue: California

Starting January 1st, 2022

A new California state law will require everyone who throws out garbage to begin recycling their organic waste.

According to SB 1383, signed into law by former Gov. Jerry Brown in 2016, any person or business that creates garbage will have to recycle all their organic food waste.

Prue says the shift in policy will help divert more than 200,000 pounds of food waste from the landfill. He says food waste makes up around 15% of the materials that get thrown out each year.

He believes keeping all of that out of the landfill will help the environment by eliminating many toxic gases created when food waste decomposes in the dump.

Down the road, however, the city will begin to levy fines against rule-breakers.

Prue hopes it becomes second nature to keep food waste out of the garbage.

"I think it's easier than a lot of people think," he says. "Hopefully, they'll just get in the habit, and in no time, they won't even really think about the fact that they're doing it."

Please consider incorporating your lifestyle adjustment with donations to some of your local services such as:

The Rio Linda Chicken Rescue and Sanctuary 501(c)(3)
