Californians are required by law (S.B. 1383) to separate organic waste out of their trash and add that waste to their previously named green waste cart. This law targets removing food waste, and organic material as a whole, from landfills. Organic material in landfills are attributed for generating 20% of the State’s methane according to the CalRecycle, the State’s solid waste governing agency. Additionally, CalRecycle has found that organic waste makes up half of all waste that is dumped in landfills.
