Have you ordered your free Kitchen Caddie from EDCO?
On April 1, 2022, EDCO will begin its new Organics Recycling Program for all residential customers in Rancho Palos Verdes. This is due to SB 1383, a new state law that requires Californians to separate organics waste, such as leftover food and kitchen scraps, from their trash and place it in their green waste bins in an effort to reduce methane emissions.
EDCO will expand source-separated green waste collection to include recycling food waste, allowing customers to place food scraps and food-soiled paper waste in the same container as green waste.
You can collect food scraps in any container for an easy way to set aside leftovers for your green organics cart, such as coffee cans or plastic food storage containers. You can also request a free, 1.5-gallon, sealable Kitchen Caddie from EDCO’s website to conveniently transfer food scraps from the kitchen to your organics cart or compost pile. Do not use any kind of plastic bags for any type of green waste, food waste or other organics, as they contaminate the compost. Paper bags are acceptable.
