The Office of Environmental Health and Safety works in conjunction with Ware Disposal, Urbaser-American, and Republic Services to provide rubbish and diversion programs District-wide. These vendors provide LAUSD with trash, recycling, and green waste disposal services. This page contains detailed information that can assist Plant Managers, Site Administrators and non-school staff to obtain additional services, report missed services and perform a variety of other rubbish tasks.

Local District East is in the process of being transitioned from Republic Services to Ware Disposal, with an estimated completion date of October 2022.

New Senate Bill 1383:

Under California Senate Bill 1383, effective January 1st, 2022 all public schools and school districts must subscribe to an organic waste collection service. Administrators will be working towards educating school district staff about organic waste prevention and how to properly sort materials into correct containers. School staff will be required to properly sort their organic waste into the correct containers.

  • Organic waste includes food, green material, landscape and pruning waste.
  • Goals within SB 1383: 
    • Effective Date: January 1st 2022 
    • Enforcement required: January 1st 2024
    • First Goal: 75% Reduction in Organics by January 1st 2025
    • Second Goal: 20% Increase in Edible Food Recovery by January 1st 2025

What does this all mean for District sites? 

The District will be working with our Vendors to bring green and food waste bins to all locations, along with training programs to help everyone learn how to sort all materials properly. These changes will be occurring over the course of the next two years to help the District come into compliance with these regulations quickly and effectively.
