The City of Culver City is working with Go2Zero, a consultancy firm which will, “Assist with the expansion of the Organics Waste Recycling Program for businesses and multifamily customers.” On Jan.1, State Bill 1382 went into effect, requiring residents, mandated businesses and multi-family complexes to divert organics from landfills. “As California’s Short-lived Climate Pollutant Reduction Strategy, SB 1383 aims to reduce statewide organic waste disposal by 75% by 2025,” reads a statement. “Diverting organics from the landfill reduces the level of harmful pollutants, such as methane, that are emitted into our air, thus combating climate change and reducing adverse health effects.” Culver City residents should already have the green trash cart for disposal of food and yard waste. However, many businesses and multi-family residencies do not have collection services. So the City engaged Go2Zero, “a consulting firm specializing in zero waste strategies for businesses and communities.” According to the City’s statement, “In the coming weeks, Go2Zero Strategies will be visiting Culver City businesses and multi-family complexes to conduct a site assessment. During their visit, Go2Zero Strategies’ representatives will educate owners about how SB 1383 impacts them by sharing regulation details, determining whether their business is included in the mandate, collecting required information for recordkeeping, and ultimately, assisting with outreach and rollout of new collection services.” For more information, visit go2zero.net
