Food Waste Prevention and Recovery Act

This law, commencing July 1, 2020, requires large food waste generators to separate food waste from the general waste stream and then either arrange for its reuse by the food insecure or for animal feed, to compost it on site, or to arrange for licensed services for the purpose of delivering it to a processing facility for composting or anaerobic digestion. The law will remove food waste generated on an annual basis from the waste stream incrementally from generators producing 2 tons per week to 0.5 tons per week by April 22, 2023.
