organics capacity

How will jurisdictions procure processing services to manage organics through SB 1383? Learn about how Sacramento County formed an internal “Organics Team” to tackle emerging challenges with organics processing capacity and how they avoided ‘competing’ with other jurisdictions for the capacity. The presentation will shed light on how jurisdictions can collaborate without formal creation of partnerships and JPAs. Perhaps your jurisdiction is toying with the idea of building an organics/AD facility, but doesn’t want to take on the risks related to technical performance or operation? Come learn from a project in which the city retained ownership and control of the facility.
