AB 34 (Williams, 2011-12) Compost Infrastructure Development

AB 34 targets the most prevalent items in our waste stream by encouraging the development of compost facilities to recycle organic materials.

Position and Status. 
CAW Supports.

AB 34 was held in Assembly Appropriations Committee and is now dead.

This bill helps meet the state's goal of diverting 50% of our organic waste by 2020 by addressing the barriers to expanding California's composting infrastructure. The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery estimates that a third of waste sent to landfills is compostable organic material that could be used to make soil amendment that not only avoids methane at landfills but also helps build healthy soils.
