Bans and Beyond: Designing and Implementing Organic Waste Bans and Mandatory Organic Recycling Laws

1

This toolkit analyzes the structure and implementation of organic waste bans and presents examples from states and cities with existing or proposed waste bans. The toolkit provides a resource to help state and local governments, advocates, and other stakeholders evaluate options for developing policies to address food waste and tailor approaches to state or local context. The toolkit analyzes organic waste bans from a holistic perspective, examining the structure of organic waste ban laws as well as other factors including funding, infrastructure, enforcement, and education. Together, these components can have a significant impact on how an organic waste ban policy will function in a given state or locality.
