California Senate Bill SB 1383
SB 1383 sets methane emissions reduction targets for California in a statewide effort to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP). According to CalRecycle methane is considered a climate super pollutant and is 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Organic waste in California landfills emits 20 percent of the state’s methane. SB 1383 ultimately requires a 75 percent reduction of the level of statewide disposal of organic waste by 2025, based on levels from 2014. Additionally, 20 percent of commercial edible food will need to be recovered from disposal. Everyone will be affected by SB 1383 including, residents, multi-family properties and complexes, businesses, schools, and public agencies.
