SB 1383 was signed into law in 2016 to reduce methane emissions created by organic waste, dairy, and livestock. The bill sets statewide targets to reduce organic waste sent to landfills by 75% and recover at least 20% of edible food thrown away by grocery stores, restaurants, and other large food generators by 2025. Beginning January 1, 2022, all residents and businesses will be required to recycle organic waste. This law will be implemented in the entire state, not just in the City of Azusa.
