Waste Management

Waste Management Hotline:  1-213-241-3955

 

The goal of the Districtís Recycling Program is to reduce the amount of waste the District disposes in landfills by 70 percent during the period 1990 to 2020, increasing from the current 50 percent goal adopted in 1989, making our goal consistent with that established by the City of Los Angeles. See the current diversion rate the district is achieving here: Recycling (*.pdf).

Compactor and Compactor Bins

 

Maintenance:

Your compactor and compactor bins are LAUSD property. Trash is hauled away by LAUSDís contracted rubbish services company, but maintenance is provided by LAUSDís Maintenance & Operations. 

 

Request service from your Complex Project Manager (CPM) for any structural or mechanical issues with your compactor or compactor bins.

 

Stopping your Compactor Usage:

Decision to stop the use of you compactor must first be reported to your CPM and Area Operations Supervisor. They will ensure the compactor be locked from unauthorized use. Second, contact OEHS at 213-241-3955 so we can exchange the smaller compactor bins for the larger regular-sized waste bins.

 

Starting your Compactor Usage:

Decision to re-start the use of your compactor must first be reported to your CPM and Area Operations Supervisor. They will ensure the compactor be unlocked for use. Second, contact OEHS at 213-241-3955 so we can exchange the larger regular-sized waste bins for the compactor bins.
