Inspection and Enforcement
The State regulations require the County to monitor and audit carts, bins and self-haul services. Business and residential organic collection routes are subject to audits and inspections for contamination and proper cart/bin sizing to help ensure the maximum amount of material is being recovered. If found to be non-compliant, State regulations and the County Ordinance Code require enforcement and notice of violations to be issued if an account is not in compliance. This may include a fine.
Please use this form to submit an alleged violation of the State of California Senate Bill (SB) 1383. Only complete this form if the violation has occurred in the Unincorporated areas of San Mateo County only. See this map for reference.
Once submitted, the Office of Sustainability will review your submission and commence the investigation within 90 days. This form will be submitted anonymously, and you will not be disclosed to the alleged violator.
