Succeeding with SB 1383 (for food businesses)

A new state law (SB1383) affects eligible food businesses.

The City of Eureka will be leading an informational meeting in partnership with Abound Food Care that will provide everything you need to know to begin planning your SB1383 compliant food recovery program, such as:

  • SB1383 Edible Food Regulations and what it means to your business
  • The Food Donation Process
  • The Benefits of Participation in Food Donation

Where:

  • In Person: Eureka Council Chambers, 531 K Street, Eureka, CA 95501

—OR—

The background:

Almost one in four Californians don’t have enough to eat.

SB 1383 requires certain food businesses to donate the maximum amount of edible food they would otherwise dispose, to food recovery organizations. Mandated food donors can help their communities by working with local food banks, food pantries, and other food recovery organizations and services.

State law SB1383 went into effect January 1, 2022. The City of Eureka received a waiver for the law to instead go into effect on January 1, 2023.

What is SB1383?

Treated Wood Waste Accepted At Hawthorne Street Transfer Station Beginning July 1st

Effective Thursday, July 1st and until further notice, HWMA is pleased to announce we were granted a 6-month variance waiver from the Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) to allow the acceptance of Treated Wood Waste (TWW) at the Hawthorne Street Transfer Station’s Tip Floor.  This waiver comes after DTSC banned the disposal of TWW at California landfills on January 1, 2021.

This waiver allows HWMA to accept and dispose of TWW to permissible landfills with proper lining and environmental controls.  TWW contains hazardous chemicals that pose a risk to human health and the environment. Arsenic, chromium, copper, creosote and pentachlorophenol are among the chemicals used to preserve wood and are known to be toxic or carcinogenic.

DTSC requires that in order to transport hazardous waste, such as TWW, persons must either be a registered hazardous waste transporter or have received a variance from DTSC.  Further information on obtaining a variance can be found at https://dtsc.ca.gov.  This excludes homeowners who self-deliver less than 50 pounds of TWW.

Please review the following TWW guidelines prior to visiting HWMA’s Transfer Station:

CalTrans Looking for Local Traffic Safety Help

Caltrans (District 1) in Eureka is looking for help in developing its very first District 1 Active Transportation Plan.

This is a really exciting “first” for them. They’re identifying locations on state highways throughout the entire District (Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, and Mendocino Counties) where pedestrians and bicyclists need better infrastructure to encourage more safe and comfortable trips made on foot or by bicycle.

Public input is VERY important in this effort, and that’s why they’re asking for your help. They’d love to know your opinions about where things can be improved for pedestrians and cyclists and have developed an online mapping survey (https://survey.catplan.org/) so you can locate areas where your have walking or biking concerns. The survey closes November 30, 2020. 

If you have something to say that isn’t easily captured through the survey, you can contact them at:
