Early Los Angeles Success Story

As part of the City of LA’s RecycLA franchise waste program, waste haulers are required to contact businesses to inform them of the changes, conduct a waste services assessment, identify ways to increase recycling, and look for right-sizing opportunities and other measures to reduce costs.

One of Waste Control’s clients is an apartment community that was notified that they would experience an increase in their monthly bill of $4,700.  Through Waste Control’s proprietary auditing practices, it’s thorough knowledge of the City of LA’s waste contracts, and extensive experience in the waste industry, Waste Control identified cost savings measures that will save the community $2,000 per month!  This was after the franchised hauler had met with the property to determine ways to minimize the impact of the rate increases.

RecycLA Waste Franchise Updates

 

RecycLA is coming and here are a few updates:

The City of LA has indicated that a recent lawsuit brought by the Apartment Owners Association of Los Angeles will not delay the July 1 implementation date for the program.

“The recently renamed RecycLA franchise system will be the largest of its kind in the country, involving 11 zones serviced by seven haulers and multiple subcontractors.”

The City has also released an online map that shows the hauler zones with implementation sub-zones.  If you enter your address, you will find who your franchised hauler will be and the month the transition starts.  For instance, if the map shows you are in WM 2, you will be serviced by Waste Management and your transition will begin in August with the new rates taking effect in September.

Waste Control can provide you with a free estimate of what your rates will be under the new franchise.  Please contact us here or by phone at (888) 855-8559.
