The City of Los Angeles has developed the Solid Waste Integrated Resources Plan (SWIRP) a long-range plan for the City’s solid waste management needs through 2030. SWIRP identifies the policies, programs and facilities that will be needed to reach the City’s goal of 90 percent landfill diversion by 2025.
SWIRP, which is a Master Plan with no site specific development proposed at this time, identifies the potential future development of 10 to 15 facilities that would address the City’s solid waste infrastructure needs through 2030 (one large or six small composting facilities, three clean material recovery facilities, one resource recovery center for self-haul materials, and five alternative technology facilities for treating residual waste).
The Draft PEIR is available for review at the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation at 1149 South Broadway, 5th Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90015, at www.lacity.org/san under “What’s new…”, and www.zerowaste.lacity.org under “Info,” and at the library:
