The Los Angeles Regional Agency (LARA) is a consortium of 18 large and small member cities in Los Angeles County. The Agency was formed by environmentally conscious recycling advocates and representatives from these cities.
In 2004, the California Integrated Waste Management Board, now known as CalRecycle, approved the formation of LARA as a regional agency whose mission is to promote environmental responsibility through the state mandated reduce, reuse and recycle philosophy of the State of California Assembly Bill 939.
