Group Description

Landfills are a significant source of manmade methane emissions in California. Methane is created when organic materials, whether disposed of or used as cover materials, decompose anaerobically in landfills. One way to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions in California would be to phase out compostable organic materials such as yard trimmings and food scraps from landfill disposal or use. In addition, organic materials have numerous benefits when returned to the soil, from replenishing the soil, retaining water, helping to prevent soil erosion, and treating stormwater, among others.

Join this group to discuss the purpose and design of policies that are needed and to document technical reasons to get organics out of landfills.
