Mandatory Residential Organics Recycling
Senate Bill 1383 (SB 1383) requires both residents and businesses to recycle organic materials. Beginning on January 1, 2022, San Dimas residents will be able to add food scraps to their existing organics cart. Food and yard scraps collected will then be processed into either compost or biogas at an anaerobic facility. For more information about this process, click here.

Getting Started
What should I expect?
  • You will be directed to recycle food scraps with yard trimmings in your existing organics cart
  • Continue to recycle correctly (see "What goes where?")
  • Check your lids for instructions on how to use the carts correctly and avoid contamination*
  • Sign up for a My WM profile to manage and receive important information about your account
*New lids with sorting information will be phased in by Waste Management over time.
