What is SB 1383?

Beginning January 1, 2022, all California residents and businesses are required to landfill less and compost more! SB 1383 sets two major targets to reduce emissions from short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP):

  • Reduce the amount of organic waste disposed of in landfills (50% reduction by 2020 and 75% by 2025).
  • Rescue at least 20% of currently disposed of edible food and redirect that food to people in need.
