On July 10, 2023, the Costa Mesa Sanitary District (CMSD) entered into an agreement with Tripepi Smith for a second year of SB 1383 education and outreach. Through this agreement, Tripepi Smith will produce town-hall-style meetings, PSA videos, stock photography, mailers, cart tags, social media and more.

“Strategic outreach and continued community education is key to CMSD’s plans to roll out a new three-cart curbside collection program, in compliance with SB 1383,” said CMSD General Manager Scott Carroll. “ Tripepi Smith’s support is invaluable when it comes to sharing program information with our customers, and we are grateful for their ongoing partnership!” 

Delivering SB 1383 outreach support to CMSD was one of Tripepi’s first ventures into organics recycling communication services. Since then, Tripepi Smith has advanced SB 1383 education and outreach in numerous cities such as Orange, Lomita, and Yucca Valley. As jurisdictions continue to implement SB 1383 requirements, Tripepi Smith offers a proven approach for informing key stakeholders and driving necessary behavior changes.

Tripepi Smith’s support for CMSD is a major effort by Principal Jennifer Nentwig, Senior Business Analyst Kaitlyn Wu and Junior Business Analyst Morgan Mock.

“Through their services, CMSD plays an essential role in protecting public health and advancing sustainability efforts in the region. Our continued partnership enables us to join them in this mission and leverages Tripepi Smith’s significant experience in the SB 1383 space,” said Kaitlyn. “It’s a privilege to work with CMSD for another year, and we look forward to further engaging their customers.”
