SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

Program Description

We service the solid waste management needs of the people of Los Angeles County and protect public health by ensuring that all residential, commercial, and industrial solid wastes are stored, collected, transported, transferred/processed, and disposed of in a safe, sanitary, and environmentally acceptable manner. 

RESPONSIBILITIES AND SERVICES:
  • Issue Solid Waste Facility Permits to all solid waste facilities, including disposal sites, transfer or processing stations, composting facilities, and transformation facilities
  • Require that all new solid waste facilities follow mandated permitting procedures

  • Review and, if necessary, revise or modify all existing Solid Waste Facility Permits every five years

  • Inspect each solid waste facility within its jurisdiction on a regular basis to ensure compliance with applicable regulations

  • Continue our effort to identify and investigate all closed, inactive, illegal, and abandoned landfills throughout the jurisdiction, and assign to each site a rating based on the potential impact to human health or the environment

  • Administer a Waste Tire Enforcement Grant that inspects over 2500 tire facilities in the county, inspect waste tire haulers and processors, ensure the proper disposal of waste tires at permitted facilities, and secure funding for the removal of illegally disposed waste tires
