County to host community meeting in Topanga on new dumpster/roll-off trash collection service
Los Angeles County Public Works Department will host a community meeting to provide an overview of the new non-exclusive franchise trash collection system that takes effect on July 1, 2012. The meeting will be held at the Topanga Library, 122 North Topanga Canyon Boulevard, on Wednesday, February 1, 2012 at 6:30 p.m.
The new system affects only customers that utilize dumpster/roll-off trash collection services such as commercial and apartment/condo properties that are within County unincorporated areas, but outside of County Garbage Disposal Districts.
The non-exclusive franchise system will replace the current open-market system to enable the Department to meet recent changes in State law and provide enhanced trash collection services. Under the system, all waste haulers will be able to continue service in unincorporated areas provided they meet minimum performance and customer service standards.
The community meeting will provide customers an opportunity to ask questions and comment about the proposal. For further information, please call Pat Proano at (626) 458-3500.
