Organic waste

Starting Tuesday, residents will have to separate organic waste and place it in the green waste barrel, where it will be turned into compost. New state regulations require such steps to reduce emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas, from landfills.

PALMDALE — Starting Tuesday, residents are required to separate all organic waste — including kitchen scraps and pizza boxes — into their green waste bins, to comply with new state regulations.

“Anything that used to be alive” that once went in the trash should be separated as organic waste, Palmdale Environmental Resources Manager Ben Lucha said.
