From Environmental Services: California State Senate Bill 1383 (SB 1383), requires the reduction of organic waste disposed of in landfills. Organic waste is comprised of food scraps and food-soiled paper from kitchens and food operations and yard waste such as garden and landscape waste, organic textiles and carpets and wood waste. The City of San Diego is currently working out the details about curbside food waste collection for single family homes.
As a result of this enormous planning effort, changes to yard waste collection for City of San Diego serviced residences will not begin until the summer of 2022. This timing includes those City serviced residents with existing green bins. You may find updates by visiting this page: https://www.sandiego.gov/
In the meantime:
- residents may apply for a compost bin rebate to compost food scraps in your home backyard;
- take yard waste/trimmings to the Miramar Greenery for free.
