Introduce the attached ordinance and waive the first reading. <br />FINANCIAL STATEMENT <br />The WMA and Alameda County Department of Environmental Health (ACDEH) have <br />agreed to work on behalf of the City to meet several requirements of SB 1383 as <br />outlined in the ORRO within existing resources. The costs to implement the law will be <br />further refined through negotiations with the City's franchise hauler Pleasanton Garbage <br />Service that is currently ongoing. A complete cost analysis and other related funding <br />recommendations will be brought forward to the City Council in late fall 2021. <br />BACKGROUND <br />SB 1383 establishes targets to achieve a 50 percent reduction in the level of the <br />statewide disposal of organic waste from the 2014 level by 2020 and a 75 percent <br />reduction by 2025. The law grants CalRecycle the regulatory authority required to <br />achieve the organic waste disposal reduction targets and establishes an additional <br />target that not less than 20 percent of currently disposed edible food is recovered for <br />human consumption by 2025. SB 1383 requires jurisdictions to address and adequately <br />resource seven areas as required by the regulations. <br />In July 2021, the Council adopted the SB 1383 Action Plan which outlines actions and <br />cost estimates of implementing the programs and activities required and provides <br />recommendations for how to implement the law. <br />SB 1383 regulations regarding what is to be included in the ordinance are as follows: <br />• By January 1, 2022, a jurisdiction shall adopt enforceable ordinances (or similarly <br />enforceable mechanisms), requiring compliance by generators, haulers, and other <br />entities regulated under the SB 1383 regulations. <br />• Adopt an ordinance that requires organic waste generators to subscribe to organics <br />collection programs, annually provide information about organics requirements, provide <br />new information to tenants within 14 days of occupation of the premises, and arrange <br />for access to their properties for inspections. <br />• Adopt an ordinance that requires commercial organic waste generators to provide <br />containers for the collection of organic waste and non-organic recyclables in all areas <br />where disposal containers are provided for customers, except for restrooms. These <br />containers must comply with SB 1383 regulations. <br />• Adopt an ordinance that prohibits organic waste generator employees from placing <br />organic waste in a container not designated to receive organic waste. Jurisdiction shall <br />inspect external collection containers for contamination. <br />Page 2 of 8 <br />
