Cal Recycle Estimates SB 1383 Organic Waste Diversion Regulations to Cost $20.9 Billion Over 11 Years
Cal Recycle recently released its Standard Regulatory Impact Assessment (SRIA) estimating the direct costs of implementing upcoming SB 1383 organic waste diversion regulations. The SRIA indicates direct costs of approximately $20.9 billion between 2019 and 2030. These costs include expanding organic waste management infrastructure, collection and processing costs, and administrative costs of enforcement, contamination monitoring, and reporting. View the full SRIA here.
SB 1383 establishes a 50 percent reduction in the level of the statewide landfill disposal of organic waste from the 2014 level by 2020 and a 75 percent reduction by 2025.
Formal rulemaking for these regulations will begin in January 2019, however CSAC and our partners at CEAC have been working closely with Cal Recycle to provide informal feedback and comments for much of the past year.
