City of Los Angeles Waste Hauling Takes Big Step to Exclusive Franchise System

The City of Los Angeles took another step towards granting exclusive franchises for commercial trash hauling within the City, franchises that would also cover large apartment complexes. Under a plan approved by two City Council Committees on August 29, Los Angeles would be divided into eleven geographical areas, with a commercial trash hauler granted an exclusive franchise in each.

According to a Los Angeles Times article, labor and environmental groups support the plan, claiming it will “boost recycling, reduce truck traffic, and improve working conditions in a hazardous industry”.
