Beginning January 1, 2022, California's Senate Bill (SB) 1383 requires all businesses and multi-family properties to arrange for organic waste collection services including food waste and green (yard) waste unless they are elible for a De Minimus or Physical Space Waiver. Criteria for these waivers are as follows:
De Minimus Waiver
Businesses that generate at least 2 cubic yards of solid waste and less than 20 gallons of organic waste per week; or businesses that generate less than 2 cubic yards of solid waste and less than 10 gallons of organic waste per week. (An example might be a business that utilizes a landscaper to remove all green waste offsite and has no food waste.)
Physical Space Waiver
Businesses that have no space on-site for additional containers. In some cases, containers may be placed outside of an enclosure.
