Please join HF&H Consultants at our free SB 1383 Local Government Summit to learn about the biggest regulatory change to impact the solid waste industry in decades! Get up to speed on what your agency needs to do to achieve compliance. 

A major component of SB 1383 is reducing statewide methane emissions through reduced landfilling of organic waste. The legislation expands the definition of organic waste (to include yard trimmings, food scraps, paper, wood, and more) and has more prescriptive program requirements than AB 939. CalRecycle just released the second version of the draft regulations, and the jurisdictional program requirements are extensive. The details will be discussed during our SB 1383 Local Government Summit.

What to expect at the Summit:

  • SB 1383 “101” – Get briefed on the basics of SB 1383, also known as the Short-lived Climate Pollutants: Organic Waste Methane Emissions Reduction legislation.
  • What SB 1383 Means for You – Take a closer look at the compliance requirements.
  • Pathways to Compliance – Explore program approaches, timelines, and funding strategies.
  • Learn from Others – Hear from leading agencies with mature organics recovery and enforcement programs.
  • Join the Conversation – Spend some social time with colleagues to discuss SB 1383.
