Waste Disposal in School
Starting April 1, 2016, a commercial or public entity (such as a school or hospital) including multifamily residential dwellings (5 units or more), that generates a specific amount of organic waste, is required to divert its organic solid waste. Reducing the amount of organic materials sent to landfills and increasing the production of compost and mulch are part of the AB 32 (California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006) Scoping Plan.
Who Must Comply
Businesses and public entities (such as schools or hospitals) that generate a specified amount of organic waste on and/or after April 2016.
- Schools that generate eight cubic yards of organic waste per week shall arrange for organic waste recycling services.
- Schools that generate four cubic yards of organic waste per week shall arrange for organic waste recycling services.
- Schools that generate four cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week shall arrange for organic waste recycling services.
How to Comply
Schools and other public entities that meet the waste generation threshold can take one or any combination of the following organic recycling activities:
- Source separate organic waste from other waste and participate in a waste recycling service that includes collection and recycling of organic waste.
- Recycle its organic waste on site, or self-haul its organic waste off site for recycling.
- Subscribe to an organic waste recycling service that may include mixed waste processing that specifically recycles organic waste.
Other Related School Recycling & Sustainability Laws
Public Resources Code, sections 2 requires CalRecycle to provide assistance to school districts in establishing and implementing source reduction and recycling programs. This assistance includes a survey of school districts on their level of program implementation, development of a model waste reduction program, training and ongoing technical and informational assistance, and information on programs for other states and institutions.
In September 2001, Gov. Gray Davis also signed into law Senate Bill 373 (Torlakson, Chapter 373, Statutes of 2001), which puts in place many more mandates for CalRecycle to fulfill. These mandates help CalRecycle staff further our mission of assisting schools by establishing an integrated systems model where academics, administration, and facilities work collaboratively to incorporate resource conservation and sustainability into their organizational philosophy, planning, and implementation.
Additionally, California Education Code, sections 6, encourages each school district to establish and maintain a paper recycling program in all classrooms, administrative offices, and other areas owned or leased by the school district. These sections also encourage school districts to:
- Purchase recycled paper.
- Purchase the paper with the highest percentage of postconsumer waste.
- Revise procurement specifications to eliminate discrimination against recycled paper and to give preference to the purchase of recycled paper.
- Eliminate the purchase of paper and paper products, which are deemed potential contaminants of the educational agency's paper recycling program.
Educational services in California dispose of large amounts of waste (approximately 562, 442 tons per year) . These wastes represent a significant loss of natural resources and school district funds. To be responsible stewards of environmental quality, school districts should review processes and operations, and even curriculum choices and evaluate the economic, educational, and environmental benefits of implementing a comprehensive waste reduction program.Cic where leaders are born?
