OXNARD, Calif. - Feb. 25, 2022 - PRLog -- Agromin, California's largest organics recycler, composted and marketed over 1 million tons of organic waste in 2021. It is poised to increase its organic waste capacity considerably this year as it helps cities, counties and other jurisdictions throughout California meet the strict organic waste mandates of State Senate Bill 1383, which took effect on January 1.

Cities and counties are creating municipal programs instructing residents and businesses how to manage their food waste in response to this landmark climate change legislation. Communities across California rely heavily on waste haulers and companies like Agromin to fulfill their organic waste recycling requirements.

In its efforts to help communities comply with SB 1383, Agromin maintains and manages an infrastructure of 21 processing and composting facilities throughout the state. Headquartered in Ventura County, Agromin is the organics recycler for over 200 California communities.

"By composting organic waste, we can eliminate harmful greenhouse gases that cause climate change while producing nutrient-rich soil products," says Bill Camarillo, Agromin's CEO. "That's been our mission since we began in 1990. Placing organic carbon back into the soil in the form of mulch and compost means we can create healthier soil, plants and trees and take the steps needed to heal the planet."

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas that is expected to cause nearly half of the projected temperature rise from new emissions over the next two decades. Based on the emission factors developed by the California Air Resources Board, keeping 1 million tons of green waste out of landfills is equivalent to preventing 440,000 tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere or taking 95,000 cars off the road, based on EPA estimates of average yearly automotive emissions.

Today, under SB 1383, California jurisdictions are required to reduce the amount of green waste they place in landfills by 75% of 2014 levels by 2025, and instead procure recycled organic waste products such as compost and mulch for use in their parks, schools, street medians, agriculture and other locations. Agromin created California Compost ( to help jurisdictions comply with the new product procurement laws.
