SB 1383 for Schools

SB 1383 is a California law set to reduce the amount of organic waste (like food, paper and yard waste) going to our landfills. When organic waste decomposes in the landfill, it emits methane, a greenhouse gas over 80 times more potent than carbon dioxide. The actions of SB 1383 aim to reduce statewide disposal of organic waste by as much as 75% by 2025.

As of January 1, 2024, there are two key components of SB 1383 that apply to local education agencies (K-12 public and charter schools, school districts and County offices of education) in San Luis Obispo County: organic waste recycling and edible food recovery.
