California Senate Bill 1383 (SB 1383) requires all local jurisdictions to provide organics recycling programs to all residents and businesses no later than January 1, 2022. These programs must include yard trimmings and food waste. Tustin businesses have been able to recycle yard trimmings and food waste since 2016. Tustin residents will be able to recycle their food waste beginning July 1, 2021 by placing it in their green yard trimmings cart, which historically has been used for yard debris only.
