Cannabis (business only)

Cannabis plants that contain the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are legal in the state of California for medical and recreational use. However, cannabis is federally considered a Schedule I illegal drug. For this reason, all aspects of the industry are heavily regulated, including its waste management. This page provides guidance specifically on how to prepare cannabis plant cuttings/trimmings and edibles for composting, however, some cannabis waste companies offer comprehensive waste management services. Please see the list below the map for more information. Other pages on our website also have details on disposal of non-compostable items.
