New regulations for California cities, SB 1383, require the use of recycled organics, compost, and mulch, to help beneficially use organics on all their city's landscapes. Landscapers can now help their cities get the credit that they need for using compost locally, by increasing compost in landscape applications for their customers in any city of California. Best management practices and benefits of using compost will also be outlined in detail for three landscape applications: lawns, bedding plants, and shrubs.
1. How using compost on residential and city landscapes will now benefit cities (solid waste jurisdictions) under new SB 1383 Procurement regulations.
2. How compost is an essential amendment for both landscapers clients, water agencies, and now cities.
3. Best management practices for using compost and mulch in different irrigation zones to benefit all types of landscape applications.
