Go2Zero Aims to Reduce Organic Waste in Culver City

As of January 1, 2022, California State Law Senate Bill (SB) 1383 went into effect requiring residents, mandated businesses, and multi-family complexes to divert organics from landfills. As California’s Short-lived Climate Pollutant Reduction Strategy, SB 1383 aims to reduce statewide organic waste disposal by 75% by 2025. Diverting organics from the landfill reduces the level of harmful pollutants, such as methane, that are emitted into our air, thus combating climate change and reducing adverse health effects.

All Culver City residents should already have a green cart to divert food, food-soiled paper, yard waste and other appropriate organics.

Many businesses and multi-family complexes, however, do not have organics collection services. To better understand and prepare businesses and multi-family complexes for the SB 1383’s requirements, the City of Culver City engaged Go2Zero Strategies, a consulting firm specializing in zero waste strategies for businesses and communities.

In the coming weeks, Go2Zero Strategies will be visiting Culver City businesses and multi-family complexes to conduct a site assessment. During their visit, Go2Zero Strategies’ representatives will educate owners about how SB 1383 impacts them by sharing regulation details, determining whether their business is included in the mandate, collecting required information for recordkeeping, and ultimately, assisting with outreach and rollout of new collection services.

The City of Culver City is working diligently to ensure all businesses and residents have the resources they need to successfully implement compliant programs. We appreciate your participation in these efforts – your actions will leave lasting benefits in our community.
