FDEP REGULATORY REPORT

This report compares the organics regulations from several states to provide an analysis of Florida’s solid waste regulations for organics recycling facilities and recommendations to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). It is hoped that this report will:

1) Support the conclusion that Florida’s organics recycling regulations need to be updated

2) Help FDEP establish a schedule for revising active compost regulations

3) Provide useful information during a potential, future regulatory revision process

Ultimately, the information in this report provided comparative information to help revise Florida composting regulations that further enhance diversion and proper management of organic wastes and encourage growth and diversification of the organics recycling industry in Florida.
