As per AB 1826, businesses are required to divert organic wastes from disposal. For businesses or franchised waste haulers to receive diversion credit for
food waste (the putrescible portion of
organic waste; as opposed to
green / yard waste), the source-separated food waste must be delivered to a facility that is able to accept this material. Under draft SB 1383 Regulations of June 2019, organic material that is collected will need to be delivered to a Designated Source Separated Organic Waste Facility.
