March 2022 – Inspections and Recordkeeping

For this month, we’re looking at SB 1383 Inspections, Recordkeeping, and Reporting requirements, primarily focusing on three parts:

  1. Initial Jurisdiction Compliance Report
  2. Jurisdiction Annual Report (Restructured EAR)
  3. Implementation Record and Inspection Requirements

See below for some tips and guidelines that will help you through this ongoing process and please remember to start tracking information in your Implementation Record now!

1. Initial Jurisdiction Compliance Report

Each jurisdiction is required to submit an initial report on its compliance with the requirements of SB 1383 by April 1, 2022.

No April Fools jokes here – if you haven’t started your report yet, the best time to start is now!

CalRecycle has developed a model tool to assist in this initial reporting. Be sure to attach the initial reporting tool or alternative document with the information below and copies of your jurisdiction’s ordinances or enforceable mechanisms attached separately. Submit your report to SLCP.Organics@calrecycle.ca.gov with the subject line “Initial Jurisdiction Report”.

Initial Jurisdiction Compliance Reporting Tool

The initial report must include the following information:

  1. A copy of ordinances or other enforceable mechanisms adopted by the jurisdiction
  2. The reporting items must include:
    • The type of organic waste collection service(s) provided by the jurisdiction to its generators.
    • The total number of generators that receive each type of organic waste collection service provided by the jurisdiction.
    • If the jurisdiction is implementing an organic waste collection service that requires transport of the contents of containers to a high diversion organic waste processing facility, the jurisdiction shall identify the Recycling and Disposal Reporting System (RDRS) number of each facility that receives organic waste from the jurisdiction.
    • If the jurisdiction allows placement of compostable plastics in containers, the jurisdiction shall identify each facility that has notified the jurisdiction that it accepts and recovers that material.
    • If the jurisdiction allows organic waste to be collected in plastic bags and placed in containers with a two-container or three-container system, the jurisdiction shall identify each facility that has notified the jurisdiction that it can accept and remove plastic bags when it recovers source separated organic waste.
