It’s Now Required in Los Angeles: Curbside Organics Recycling

The City of Los Angeles has announced the creation of OrganicsLA, a curbside organics recycling program which is now required for all residents of the City of Los Angeles. The program was mandated by California Senate Bill 1383, a statewide mandate aimed at keeping organic waste out of landfills and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Effective immediately, residents are required to place food scraps and food-soiled paper, along with yard waste, in their green bins. These items include:

  • Fruits, vegetables

  • Dairy, eggshells

  • Bread, cereal, grains, rice, pasta, beans

  • Meat, bone, fish, shells

  • Coffee grounds and filters

  • Food soiled paper products

  • Yard waste, flowers, and clean untreated wood
