State Mandated Organic Recycling Implentation

State Mandated Organic Recycling Implentation
Posted on 11/09/2023
Senate Bill 1383 (SB 1383) is a statewide organic waste recycling unfunded mandate passed by the State of California legislature in 2016 that is intended to reduce organic waste in landfills. The City of Ripon is required to develop a solid waste collection plan that addresses disposal of organic waste material that meets the requirements of this State Law.

Will there be changes to my current Garbage Service?
How your household disposes of garbage and your current can service will not change. However, Ripon Public Works staff will now haul black can waste to a high-diversion organic waste processing facility instead of directly to the landfill. After evaluating a number of options to comply with SB 1383, the City of Ripon found this option to have the lowest impact to garbage rates.
