Brown Bag on CalRecycle's SB 1383

Brown Bag to Discuss CalRecycle's SB 1383 Rulemaking to Reduce Short Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCP)

On February 28, 2018, attendees met at OPR’s offices on 10th Street to hear from Marshalle Graham, from CalRecycle’s Local Assistance and Market Development Branch. She discussed how SB 1383 is changing the future organic waste materials, including food waste, and land use planning. Organic materials comprise two-thirds of the waste stream, but SB 1383 (Lara, 2016, Short-lived climate pollutants) aims to change that. SB 1383 requires CalRecycle to adopt regulations that achieve specified targets for reducing organic waste in landfills. This interactive session covered an overview of the components of SB 1383 related to organics materials management and what impacts forthcoming regulations have on the future land use planning.
