On this episode of Five Minute Friday, Bob is talking trash! No, not the smack talk variety, but rather new California legislation which has taken effect regarding the disposal of organic waste.
This is something for CA landlords and property managers alike to be aware of, especially for multifamily buildings and apartment communities. Why is California doing this? California throws away more than 6 Million tons of food waste every year and more than 24 tons of combined “green organic waste”. SB 1383 is the new law which aims to reduce the short-lived pollutants that many Californians are currently putting in our landfills.
Why is this important? The reason is that landfill organic waste emits methane, a super pollutant that is more powerful as a greenhouse gas than CO2. SB 1383 advocates are targeting Californians to reduce organic waste disposal by 75% by 2025.
