The City of Gilroy is hosting a Business Community Meeting in partnership with Morgan Hill to receive feedback on a new proposed ordinance. The draft ordinance can be viewed in advance by going to rebrand.ly/OrganicWasteDisposal.
Of special concern are businesses in the following areas: supermarkets, grocery stores, food service providers, food distributors, wholesale food vendors, food recovery organizations and services, restaurants, hotels with on-site food facilities, health facilities with on-site food facilities, large venues, large events, or a state agency with a cafeteria and local educational facilities with on-site food facilities.
Mandatory Organic Waste Disposal Reduction Ordinance
This ordinance enforces SB 1383, which requires residents and businesses to separate their organic wastes from the trash and participate in organic waste recycling programs. It also requires many restaurants and institutions to participate in edible food rescue programs. This ordinance, required by state law, will affect how residents and businesses manage organic wastes.
