Best Best & Krieger LLP Associate Joanna Gin recently spoke with the L.A. Times about the implications of SB 1383, a regulation that will require Californians to separate organic material from their other garbage starting in 2022, and the complications that some California cities are facing as a result.

Joanna, who is helping cities navigate the new rules, said that “in some places, they have a back order to get the containers the organic waste goes into, some of them don’t anticipate getting the containers before the Jan. 1 deadline.”

In the article, she explains that the complications don’t stop there. Some cities fret, in particular, over the requirement that they buy back organic waste byproducts. A formula based on population dictates, for instance, that a city of 100,000 purchase 8,000 tons of mulch a year, or the equivalent in compost or reclaimed natural gas, said Gin.
