S ince early 2016, the State of California has required businesses and multifamily dwellings to recycle organic waste. This is based on California’s Mandatory Organic Waste Recycling Legislation, or Assembly Bill 1826 (AB 1826). The purpose of AB 1826 is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by diverting commercial organic waste from landfills and transforming it into reusable products, such as compost. Businesses or multifamily residential dwellings with five or more units are required to recycle organics if they generate four or more cubic yards of solid waste per week. More program requirements are detailed on the City’s website. WHAT IS ORGANIC WASTE? O rganic waste is food waste resulting from the processing, storage, preparation, cooking, or consumption of food. Items include meat scraps, dairy products, eggshells, vegetables and trimmings, coffee grounds, pastas, rice, pizzas, breads, and cheeses. It also includes green waste, nonhazardous wood waste, and food-soiled paper mixed with food waste. 805-925-0951 ext. 7270 For more information, call (805) 925�0951 ext. 7270 or visit www.cityofsantamaria.org/utilities.
