Communicating on Kitchen Scraps Webinar image

Cities throughout the State of California must now require residents to make changes to long-standing habits around how they dispose of food scraps and other types of organic waste.

Change is hard, but Tripepi Smith is here to help! Not only is Tripepi Smith experienced in helping local governments execute community outreach and engagement necessary for state and city-mandated requirements, but our team will host an educational webinar series focused on SB 1383 and organics recycling.

The first webinar, “Communicating on Kitchen Scraps”, will be held on Thursday, January 19 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. 

As agencies across the state encourage residents to recycle kitchen scraps, a stream of questions typically emerge: “Do I have to use a kitchen pail?” “Can I use a compostable bag?” “How can I prevent smells, messes and pests?” Join this session to learn from the Costa Mesa Sanitary District (CMSD) and its partners Michael Balliet Consulting, Inc. and Tripepi Smith on how to run an Organics Recycling Program.

Our speakers include Tripepi Smith Principal Jennifer Nentwig, Michael Balliet Consulting President Mike Balliet and CMSD Management Analyst Nabila Guzman.
