SCS Engineers will provide research and consultation services supporting Los Angeles County’s waste reduction and recycling practices for businesses, multifamily residences, large venues, county facilities, other public agencies and more in the Unincorporated County Area.
SCS’s responsibilities in the public works program include: assistance with organics management and micro-composter systems, county departmental recycling, creating resource management plans and waste-free events, developing an awards and recognition program, outreach and education.
Today society recycles more solid waste than ever before.
SCS's recycling and sustainability programs are grounded in models that leverage the feasibility and viability of new technologies and approaches that make the county’s goals possible to achieve. Recycling and waste reduction are key elements in the county’s comprehensive solid waste management program.
“Our extensive understanding and experience planning and implementing waste management and recycling programs will allow us to create a more environmentally friendly County of Los Angeles,” Michelle Leonard, a vice president with SCS Engineers, said in a statement. “Diverting organic material, as well as recyclable items, from the landfills continues to move us closer to a sustainable waste management future.”
