Am I required to participate?

As of January 1, 2022, curbside organics recycling is a mandatory program.  The State of California is mandated to reduce organics to landfill by 75% by 2025 which will dramatically help to reduce the negative effects of climate change, reducing methane gas production in the landfill.
