Reducing our Dependence on Landfills - Status

RecycLA service providers (RSP's) are required to reduce the amount of waste they take to landfills. Each RSP must reduce the amount they take to landfills from their 2019 baseline, by 65% by 2025. Prior to 2025, there are two measurement periods, years 2022 and 2024. If the RSP does not meet their goals at those junctures, LASAN may assess liquidated damages.
