California Senate Bill (SB) 1383 requires all multifamily complexes and businesses to separate food waste, food-soiled paper, and green waste from garbage. They must also provide organic waste collection containers, educate residents, employees, contractors, tenants, and customers about properly separating food waste and food-soiled paper, and inspect the garbage, recycling, and organic waste containers to make sure materials are properly separated. This can be accomplished by subscribing to organic waste collection service, self-hauling organic waste to a composting or processing facility, or composting on site.

At Redwood Waste Solutions, we are committed to ensuring your compliance with SB 1383. Please contact us at 707-234-6400 for a free onsite waste assessment or to schedule service.
