Upper Napa Valley’s UVDS prepares for sweeping new organic waste regulations

The California garbage business changed permanently in 1990 when customers were required to sort their waste into separate carts.

Starting Jan. 1, 2022, with the rollout of new state regulations involving organic waste, it’s changing again.

As part of SB 1383, local jurisdictions will have to provide organic waste collection service to all residents and businesses. In the upper Napa Valley, the task of implementing a more robust organics diversion program will fall to Upper Valley Disposal Service (UVDS), which is under a long-term franchise agreement to handle waste management.
