Waste Collection Survey | Complying with Food Scrap Law

South Pasadena residents of a single-family residence are eligible to submit input regarding waste hauling services to comply with SB-1383.


The City of South Pasadena is soliciting community input as the City looks to comply with SB 1383 – new legislation that requires all residents and businesses to recycle organic waste such as food scraps and food-soiled paper. The new bill requires the City to amend our current contract with our waste hauler to comply.

The City is considering a number of options and costs, one of which includes changing our waste hauling service model from Backyard Service Model – where Athens pick-up trucks collect trash containers from our backyards – to a Curbside Service Model – where residents wheel their trash barrels to the curb for collection.
