WHY IT'S IMPORTANT
The United States is running out of landfill capacity. Five states already have laws requiring producers to divert organic waste from landfills by 2025 and include California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont, with Maryland, New York and New Jersey close behind. That is a total of 8 and counting!
CalRecycle estimates that approximately 27 million metric tons of organic material will need to be redirected from landfills in 2025 to meet the SB 1383 reduction goal, which would require as much as a 270% increase in anaerobic digestion infrastructure in California.
