SB1383, passed in California in 2016, is the most significant waste reduction mandate in the last 30 years. The law aims to combat climate change by reducing the organic waste that generates methane, a potent greenhouse gas, in our landfills. Under this legislation, all Californians, including Chino residents, are required to recycle organic waste.
