SB1383 (Organic WASTE) & NEW CARTS
A shift in California’s approach to organic waste management is taking place with a significant reduction in current levels of organic disposal. Organic waste is the largest material type that is landfilled in California each year. With that in mind, in 2016, then Governor Brown signed legislation (Senate Bill 1383) that targets reduction of short-lived climate pollutants, including methane. The law directs the state’s Department of Resources Recycling & Recovery (CalRecycle) to adopt regulations and requirements to achieve a 50 percent reduction in organic waste disposal by 2020 and a 75 percent reduction by 2025.
In accordance with state mandate SB 1383, Westlake Village residents will be receiving new waste containers to standardize each waste stream for all Californians. The base color of the new Waste Management containers is grey. The lids come in different colors: black lid for trash, blue lid for recycling, and green lid for organics. If you have any questions about your new carts, please contact Waste Management at (800) 675-1171.
