Beginning January 1, 2022, Vacaville residents will be required to recycle more of their organic waste. Currently, residential customers subscribe to green waste service, however, under SB 1383, this service will be expanded to include additional food items not currently accepted in the residential green waste program.
Additionally, as January 1, 2022 approaches, residents will notice new labels on their garbage, recycling and organics carts. These labels will show common acceptable and unacceptable materials for each waste stream to encourage proper sorting of materials, thereby reducing recycling contamination.
The City of Vacaville and Recology Vacaville Solano are working together to develop an SB 1383 program(s) that will meet the numerous requirements of the law. Residents will be notified throughout the coming months as details become available. Please continue to check this page for updates.
