The City of Folsom is launching an enhanced organics recycling program to preserve our city’s distinctive natural environment and comply with a new state law designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The law, SB 1383, requires all California residents and businesses to recycle organic waste. Organic waste includes food waste, food-soiled paper (napkins, coffee filters), yard waste, and  wood. 

The changes will help improve environmental health and preserve Folsom’s high quality of life. Folsom’s food waste and yard trimmings will be transformed into compost for farms, gardens, and parks to use.

Here’s everything you need to know about the program for residential single family homes, apartments, and  businesses.
