To assist hospitals in complying with California’s new organic waste requirements, CHA has developed a set of FAQs

The document describes the requirements that hospitals must comply with, the regulations related to the new organic waste reduction requirements, and the roles of state and local agencies and jurisdictions. 

As a reminder, Gov. Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 1383 in 2016, which set methane emissions reduction targets for California in a statewide effort to lower emissions of short-lived climate pollutants. This legislation impacts everyone who generates organic waste, from schools and universities to businesses such as hospitals.
