1. Beginning September 1, 2023, ""green waste"" containers will be redesignated as ""mixed organic waste"" containers. Customers residing in Zones 1, 2A, and 3A will be required to separate their food waste for placement in the mixed organic waste container along with their traditional green waste for collection by their designated Exclusive Service Area Provider (ESAP) hauler. Exhibit A-2 (Organic Waste Acceptable Materials List) outlines which materials can be placed in the green container, and includes: whole fruit and fruit peelings, whole vegetables and vegetable peelings, bread and grain products, pasta and rice products, eggshells and nutshells, meat scraps, dairy products (small quantities only), plant and flower materials, grass and yard trimmings, tree and shrub prunings (excluding large stumps), Christmas Trees cut into two foot sections, untreated wood materials, and other miscellaneous green waste materials."
2. Organic rates effective September 1, 2023, and apply to customers residing in the Zone 1, 2A, and 3A service rate areas as illustrated in the modified Exhibit C-3-2023 found in Amendment No. 3 of the ESAP Agreements. Zones 1, 2A, and 3A boundaries coincide with those census tracts identified as having population densities greater than 75 persons per square mile as determined by the 2020 Census data. Organic waste generators residing in census tracts having densities greater than 75 persons per square mile must comply with SB 1383 Regulations.
3. CalRecycle approved a "Low Population Waiver for Unincorporated Portions of Counties" application submitted by the County of Fresno on March 3, 2022. This waiver applies to all census tracts with a population density of 75 or less persons per square mile on March 3, 2022. Census tracts falling within the Zone 2B and Zone 3B Service Rate Areas meet this criteria, and are therefore exempted from SB 1383 organic waste collection regulations. Commercial businesses generating 2 cubic yards or more of solid waste per week are still subject to complying with AB 1826 Mandatory Organics Recycling (MORe) regulations.
4. In response to the continued volatility of the recyclable material commodity markets, as well as unprecedented inflation in the diesel fuel commodity markets, Amendment 3 calls for a “Supplemental Inflation Mitigation Surcharge (SIMS).” The SIMS is designed as follows:
