ORGANICS AND FOOD RECYCLING – In These California Counties
The WARE Organics and Food Waste Recycling Program
With the passage of AB 1826, new organic recycling requirements will be phased in over several years and will help the state of California meet its goal to recycle 75 percent of its waste by 2020 and comply with the requirements of AB 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006.
What is required? Restaurants and food service companies are required to recycle their organic waste on and after April 1, 2016, depending on the amount of waste they generate per week.
On April 1, 2016, the requirement is eight (8) cubic yards or more of organic waste. That is equal to two 4-cubic yard bins collected once weekly. This threshold will decrease to four (4) cubic yards per week by January 1, 2017.
The requirement to recycle organic waste can be met by adopting the Ware Organics Recycling Program. With this program, you can recycle all food scraps and leftovers. Please note that paper, plastics, metals, or bones are unacceptable since wastes may be converted to animal feed and/or high grade compost. To participate, simply scrape food scraps and leftovers into any small container for temporary storage; and when it’s full, take it outside to your Ware-supplied organic recycling cart for pick up. Here’s what you get in this program:
– FREE explanatory labels in English and Spanish that can be easily attached to your internal separation containers
– FREE Training for all employees
– Clean automated wheeled cart(s) for easy external storage
– Customized pick up schedule
