Attention California Businesses & Residents
Organic Waste Recycling - Effective January 1, 2022

Effective January 1, 2022, all businesses and residents that reside in the state of California are required to recycle organic waste. Organic waste includes food waste, landscape debris, green waste, non-hazardous wood waste, and food-soiled paper products. Organic waste material can be combined and collected in one cart for residential customers. Commercial business customers will need to have organic waste separated into a two-cart system (one cart is needed for food waste and one cart for yard waste).


Acceptable waste will include:

  • Food waste: Prepared food, meat, vegetables, fruit, bones, eggshells, and dairy.

  • Green/Yard waste: Grass, leaves, plants, and branches.

  • Food-soiled paper: Paper plates, napkins, coffee filters, and tea bags. 

Recycling Basic Steps

1.  Be mindful of what you put in your recycling container to ensure that only acceptable items are included. Examples of materials that can typically be recycled include cardboard, paper, plastic bottles, and metal cans. Check with your local waste management or recycling program for a comprehensive list of what is accepted in your area. Proper sorting of recyclable materials is key to reducing contamination and improving the quality of the recycling stream.

2.  To prepare your recyclable items for proper processing, make sure to empty them of any food, liquid, or other contaminants. For plastic and metal items, it's recommended to wash and dry them before placing them in the recycling container. Certain materials, such as items that are contaminated by liquid, food waste, or mixed materials like plastic and paper blended packaging, are not accepted in recycling programs and should be placed in the trash. Be sure to read the instructions carefully and consult your local waste management or recycling program if you're unsure about what items are acceptable.

3.  Avoid putting your recyclable items in plastic bags, as this can interfere with the recycling process and damage machinery. Instead, place your recyclable items directly into your recycling container without using a bag. Plastic bags can't be recycled through curbside programs and are often sent to landfill or incineration, contributing to waste and pollution. If you need to dispose of plastic bags, look for a designated drop-off location at your local grocery store or other retailers that accept plastic bag recycling.
