Public Works currently manages two types of solid waste collection systems: Residential
Franchise System and Garbage Disposal Districts (GDDs). In a residential franchise
system, an agreement is awarded to an exclusive waste hauler to provide trash collection
and recycling services to all single-family residences and duplexes within specific
unincorporated communities. In a GDD, a contract is awarded to a waste hauler to
provide trash collection and recycling services to all residential and commercial
properties in designated unincorporated communities that have been recognized as
garbage disposal districts. Unincorporated areas that are not franchised or established
as a GDD currently operate through an open market system for trash collection services.
● Residential Franchise System:
This system services residential customers throughout the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County who utilize cart services, excluding the Garbage Disposal Districts.
● Garbage Disposal Districts:
This system services residential
and commercial customers in the unincorporated areas of the South LA and Malibu
● Open Market:
This system services customers in County unincorporated areas, which are not part of a Garbage Disposal District or in the Residential Franchise System.
