Why Compost: Meet California Waste Reduction Goals

Why Compost: to reach California goalsComposting helps California reach our waste reduction goals by keeping organic waste out of landfill. SB 1383 requires the state to reduce organic waste disposal by 75% by 2025. That’s a reduction of 20 million tons annually by 2025. Communities that don’t make significant progress towards achieving these goals can face fines of up to $10,000 per day from the State.
