Waste Less Living

AB 1826 – So what is that all about….

AB 1826 is California’s landmark food scraps recycling law that was signed by Governor Brown back in 2014 which goes into affect come April 1, 2016.  Commercial businesses generating 8 cy or more in food waste a week (to start) are mandated to have some kind of organics recycling program or service in place.  This is a huge boon to the composting world…though the best and highest use of the uneaten food should be for human and animal consumption first, composting second!  The organization Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy (LAANE) and the LA Food Policy Council are working on just that.  What an amazing group of dedicated and passionate people.  Check out their work on their websites:
