Good Jobs, Zero Waste Forum
Thursday, June 29, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Lauren Ahkiam will review best practices and policy for good jobs and zero waste and tell the story of the Don’t Waste LA campaign. Learn about the changes coming to Sonoma County and how you can get involved and support the process.
Don’t Waste LA is a coalition of community, environmental, faith and labor organizations working to increase LA’s recycling and composting LA while cleaning up a historically dirty and dangerous industry. In Spring 2014, the Los Angeles City Council adopted a Zero Waste LA franchise policy which will transform our waste and recycling system for businesses and apartments and eliminate our dependence on landfills, dirty trucks and dangerous jobs.
Don’t Waste LA is working with leaders in the City of Los Angeles to ensure that implementing our new system will protect us with the highest possible customer service standards and accountability — making LA a national model for greater recycling, fair rates, quality service, clean trucks, and safe jobs.
