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:
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
