    Anaheim briefs: Organic waste trash sorting began in Anaheim on July 1 
    • July 6, 2023

    To meet state goals of reducing methane emissions from landfills and extending their lifespan, Anaheim residents are now required to discard food and organic waste differently.

    Residents will need to separate their organic from the main trash bin and dispose of it in the yard waste bin. Organic waste includes: food scraps such as uneaten food, overripe fruit or vegetables, bones, coffee grounds and filters, tea bags; landscaping clippings such as leaves, weeds, plants, shrubs;  food-soiled paper such as greasy pizza boxes and paper plates; wood and lumber.

    Residents living in apartment, condominium or townhome communities should contact property managers to understand how the new rules apply to them.
