SB1383 Compliance

Recycling is good for the environment and the well-being of everyone in the City of Stanton. Importantly, it is required by State law! In 2016 Governor Brown signed into law SB 1383 establishing methane emissions reduction targets in a statewide effort to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP). The targets must reduce organic waste disposal by 75% and recover at least 20% of currently disposed surplus food by 2025. To learn more, please visit

All businesses, schools, and single-family and multi-family residences are required to:

  • Subscribe to recycling and organics collection service through CR&R, Incorporated.
  • Source-separate trash, recycle, and organic materials into the designated containers. To learn more, visit “What goes in my container”.
  • Create an internal organics and recycling program for employees, contractors, tenants, and customers where:
    • Access to an adequate number, size, and location (indoor/outdoor) of containers is available.
    • Containers are color-coded in the following color scheme: gray/black for trash, blue for recycling, and green for organics.
    • Annually, educational information is provided on how to properly sort the three (3) waste streams into the correct containers (new tenants must be provided with this information within 14 days of move-in).
    • Containers are periodically inspected, and employees are informed if contaminants are found.
Stanton's multi-family communities are key partners with the City and C&R Environmental Services in meeting state-mandated recycling requirements.  Together, the City of Stanton and CR&R Environmental Services have launched a Food Scrap Recycling Program that will conveniently collect food from multi-family and HOA properties and transport them to be processed.
