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. Therefore, 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 CRRA and industry experts as we discuss the purpose and design of
such a policy and explore alternatives to organics disposal.
