SB 1383: Short Lived Climate Pollution Reduction

Rising levels of greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere are causing a climate crises. When short-lived climate pollutants like organic waste (food scraps, food-soiled-paper, and yard waste) end up in landfill, they break down anaerobically which generates methane, a greenhouse gas super pollutant 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

To respond to this climate crisis, California has implemented SB 1383, the Short Lived Climate Pollutants Organics Recycling Law. You can learn more about this law on the CalRecycle website and by watching the video below.

SB 1383 was finalized and approved by the California Office of Administrative Law in 2020 and the regulations become effective January 1, 2022.

You can learn more about and the law and how it impacts residents, multifamily dwellings and businesses in El Cerrito by viewing our Recycling Laws page.
