Good Policy: Zero Waste Plan
Posted by David Fink in # Blog, #Reducing Emissions on December 5, 2016
The City Council will be voting this week on the carefully crafted Zero Waste Plan, a landmark effort that promises to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas pollution and other environmental impacts in the region.
We’re supporting the plan because it will reduce greenhouse gases by:
- decreasing the amount of solid waste reaching landfills
- reducing the number of truck trips needed to pick up waste
By streamlining a system that is currently inefficient and regionalizing contracts within the city, we can reduce greenhouse gases and help Los Angeles continue to lead on climate.
