Washington State has updated its compostable product labeling standards, effective June 6, 2024. The changes, part of the Organics Management Law 2.0, aim to reduce contamination in composting facilities by clearly identifying compostable products. Key updates include exemptions for certain fiber and wood products, stringent certification requirements for film bags and food service items, and specific guidelines for labeling home compostable products. The new standards are intended to support waste reduction goals and improve the quality of compost produced in the state.
