Roadmap to a Sustainable Waste Management Future


On April 22, 2014, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors adopted a motion (PDF, 7.7KB) directing the Department of Public Works to establish a Working Group of County Departments and develop a Roadmap to achieve a Sustainable Waste Management Future. Subsequently, on October 21, 2014, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors adopted the Roadmap to a Sustainable Waste Management Future for the County of Los Angeles. The Roadmap lays out the general framework for the strategies and initiatives that the County can implement in County Unincorporated Communities, Regional/Countywide, and at County Operations to decrease reliance on landfills by maximizing the recovery of products, materials, and energy from waste that would otherwise be disposed at landfills, and provides direction to the Department of Public Works and other County departments to initiate the implementation of the Roadmap.
