California law SB 1383 requires local jurisdictions to monitor contamination and proper sorting of organics, recycling, and landfill by performing annual route audits. Beginning this week, an inspector from Mt. Diablo Resource Recovery (MDRR) may be in your neighborhood performing "lid-flips" and looking into your organics, recycling, and landfill carts at residences and businesses. MDRR is only looking for proper sorting of materials, and may leave outreach information on your carts, including a “Good Job” or “Oops” tag, with helpful tips and suggestions.
MDRR will NOT be: 1) imposing any fines; 2) taking photos of the contents of the carts; 3) touching materials in the carts; or 4) dumping the contents of the cart. For information about proper sorting, please visit the MDRR website.
