Senate Bill 1383 was signed into law by Governor Brown in September 2016, this law requires a 75% statewide reduction in organic waste by 2025, this includes food waste, green waste, and items such as paper and wood wastes. The law sets regulatory authority to CalRecycle to achieve the organic waste disposal reduction targets and establishes an additional target that not less than 20 percent of currently disposed edible food is recovered for human consumption by 2025.

SB 1383 requires certain businesses that are defined as either a “Tier 1” or “Tier 2” edible food generators to recover edible food and make formal arrangements for items to be donated to organizations that will distribute food to food insecure individuals and families in the community, visit our Edible Food Donation page.
