SB 1383 Local Assistance Grant Program
Malibu was awarded state grant funds to help implement its Organic Waste Recycling Program. Attendees will receive a free kitchen scraps collection caddy (limit one per household). The 1.9 gallon, dishwasher-safe caddies are easy to fill, carry, empty, and clean, offering a convenient way to collect food scraps to be recycled.
Individuals who complete the workshop can contact Environmental Programs staff at 310-456-2489 to arrange to pick up their caddy at Malibu City Hall. Please be prepared to show identification with a Malibu address and proof of attendance.
Malibu created a free Zero Waste Guide to help residents learn how to sort food scraps based on their hauler’s requirements. The guide is available at: www.MalibuCity.org/HomeZeroWasteGuide
Each waste hauler serving Malibu has slightly different requirements. Malibu Garbage Disposal District customers can learn more at www.CleanLA.com/OrganicWaste and other City residents can learn more at www.MalibuCity.org/organics.
