Yes! This is a new system similar to how your trash is picked up now. Everyone will need to participate and properly sort discarded materials into the correct bins or receptacles provided.
If you choose not to participate, you may receive a fine similar to if you don’t dispose of your regular trash properly.
The enforcement provisions in SB 1383 will assist jurisdictions, non-local entities, local education districts, state, federal facilities, and CalRecycle to achieve the state’s climate goals and the 75 percent organic waste diversion goal by 2025 and into the future. More information on enforcement rollout are forthcoming.
