Food Scrap Compost Program (Finally) Goes Citywide
Go ahead. Toss that banana peel in the green bin.
As of January 23, all @lacitysan customers can use their #greenbin to dispose of ALL
#foodscraps and food-soiled paper, along with #yardwaste, per #California #SB1383.
(Visit http://lacitysan.org/organics for more info and to pick up a free pail that can be used
for scraps before putting them in the green bin.) According to the Los Angeles Times , the
announcement comes a year after California enacted Senate Bill 1383, which required
people to separate food scraps from the rest of their trash. The city of Los Angeles rolled
out its composting program in 2019 but expanded slowly as new facilities and upgrades to
existing facilities to accommodate composting were completed.
