Malibu was awarded state grant funds via the SB 1383 local assistance grant program 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.

Participants who complete the workshop can contact Environmental Programs staff at 310-456-2489 to arrange to pick up their caddy at Malibu City Hall. Be prepared to show identification with a Malibu address and proof of attendance.

The city created a free Zero Waste Guide to help residents learn how to sort their food scraps based on their hauler’s requirements. The guide is available on the website.
Each waste hauler serving Malibu has different requirements. Malibu Garbage Disposal District customers can learn more at and other City residents can learn more at
