Release of Draft Program EIR - Zero Waste LA (Commercial and Multifamily Franchise Hauling)

3:14 PM (3 hours ago)
The City of Los Angeles is releasing a Notice of Completion (NOC) for the 
Draft Program Environmental Impact Report (Draft PEIR) on Commercial 
and Multifamily Franchise Hauling, also known as Zero Waste LA
The NOC is to inform the public that the Draft PEIR has been completed 
and is ready for public comment from November 21, 2013 
to January 10, 2014.
The City of Los Angeles will consider the adoption of an ordinance to 
establish and implement an exclusive waste franchise system on a citywide 
basis for collection and handling of Solid Resources (including solid waste, 
organic material and recyclables) from commercial and multifamily 
(commercial) establishments currently serviced by permitted private waste 
haulers within the City. Zero Waste LA would replace the City’s current open 
market waste collection and handling system for commercial establishments 
in the City.  
The City of Los Angeles collects, with its own publicly owned solid waste 
collection trucks, solid waste from single family homes and smaller multifamily 
complexes.  The City will continue to provide these services which are not 
part of the proposed project.
The NOC gives the details of public meetings, where the Draft PEIR is 
available, and where to submit written comments. It can be accessed in the 
"What's new..." section of Sanitation's website at

We look forward to your participation during this public review period, and 
hope you join us at one of the scheduled meetings.
