SB 1383 - Annual Procurement Requirements - January 2021

Starting on January 1, 2022, cities and counties in California will be required to procure a minimum amount of products made from recycled organic waste each year. Affected jurisdictions can meet the requirement by procuring products for their use or to give away.

The procurement target is based on 0.08 tons of organic waste per resident. For example, a city of 100,000 people would have an organics procurement target of 8,000 tons. Affected jurisdictions can meet their procurement target from any combination of the following materials: compost, mulch, electricity generated from biomass, and renewable gas.
