"Converting Waste Into Renewable Resources"
Each day, 135,000 tons of trash is sent to California landfills. These materials represent a resource that could be better used to benefit the businesses and residents of California.
21st century conversion technologies are changing the way we think of trash or waste. The County of Los Angeles sees trash as a potential resource, and conversion technologies are an innovative way to convert that resource into renewable energy, biofuels, and other useful products.
Together with source reduction, recycling, and composting, conversion technologies can help cities and counties reduce the amount of materials currently going to landfills.
Los Angeles County is a leader in preserving the environment and protecting public health through a variety of innovative environmental programs. The County is involved in a diverse approach to waste management through our waste reduction, reuse, and recycling programs.
