Zero Waste and Recycling Interim Study Committee. The bill
tasks the executive director of the department of public health and
environment (executive director) or the executive director's designee and
the commissioner of agriculture (commissioner) or the commissioner's
designee with developing an organics management plan (plan) on or
before September 1, 2022. The department of public health and

environment may incorporate the plan into the department's existing work
regarding organics management if its existing work meets the standards
established for the organics management plan.
In developing the plan, the executive director and the
commissioner are required to study and make recommendations regarding
organic waste management practices to encourage compost use on soil to
promote carbon storage.
The executive director and the commissioner must also complete
2 statewide surveys as part of the plan, with one survey examining end
uses for the major categories of organic waste feedstock generated within
the state and the other survey examining existing organic waste
generation facilities and processing capacity.
On or before February 1, 2023, the executive director, in
collaboration with the commissioner, shall submit a report summarizing
the plan to the legislative committees with jurisdiction over energy or
agricultural matters.
