Yesterday, the CIWMB held its Organics Summit to discuss the barriers and solutions to diverting organics from landfills. The highlights of the event included a panel of composters, group discussions, and the many out-of-the-box ideas that were recommended. Notably, there were a few recurring themes throughout the day, especially the stateâ€™s ADC policy and areas for outreach, education, and research. It seemed clear that the board need to act quickly on these issues.
We encourage the Board to follow-up on the suggestions presented to them and to take bold action to tackle the large amounts of organics being disposed in California.
Also, CAW has submitted a letter to the California Climate Action Registry in response to their draft landfill methane capture protocol. Read the letter on our letter page.
