[ARCHIVED] When will organics recycling begin in RPV?

Organics Recycling

You may have heard that because of a new law that went into effect on January 1, Californians are now required to separate organics waste, such as leftover food and kitchen scraps, from their trash and place it in their green waste bins. What does this mean for RPV?

SB 1383 aims to reduce methane emissions by diverting organics waste from landfills for other uses like compost, mulch, and renewable energy. While the law is now in effect, cities have been given time to transition to offering organics waste collection to their residents and businesses. Rancho Palos Verdes has not yet made the transition.

On January 18, the City Council will consider entering an agreement with EDCO to provide organics waste collection to residential customers after April 1. This includes proposed rate increases. A staff report with more information is available at:

When the City implements organics waste collection, residents and businesses will be made aware through a robust outreach campaign. Please stay tuned for updates.
