Weigh in on Plastics Reduction Program

Weigh in on Plastics Reduction Program

The City of Los Angeles (City) is seeking to implement a citywide Comprehensive Plastics Reduction Program (proposed Program). As a result, the City through its Bureau of Sanitation (LASAN) has prepared a Draft Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Draft PEIR analyzes and discloses the potential environmental effects of the proposed Program, identifies ways to reduce significant environmental effects, and identifies feasible alternatives to avoid or minimize significant environmental effects.

An official copy of the Draft PEIR and the Notice of Completion and Availability can be viewed at the City’s LASAN website at: www.lacitysan.org/ceqa. Hard copies of the Draft PEIR are also available to be viewed in-person at the City’s Public Works Building front desk and at fifteen Los Angeles Public Library branches throughout the City. For a list of the fifteen libraries, please visit the LASAN website listed above.

The City is holding three 90-minute virtual public meetings to provide an overview of the proposed Program and environmental analysis to assist in developing comments on the Draft PEIR.

  • March 21, 11am
  • April 4, 6pm
  • April 6, 9am

LASAN will provide a presentation outlining the proposed Program elements and timeline during the first 30 minutes of the meetings. After the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to present questions on the proposed Program. No decisions on the proposed Program will be made at these virtual meetings. Questions or comments raised in the meetings will not be considered as official comments. Official comments must be submitted in writing. To register for the public meetings, please visit laplasticsceqa.eventbrite.com.

The City would like to receive your comments on the potential environmental effects of the proposed Program. Your written comments and input will be accepted throughout a 45-day public review period, ending at 5:00 p.m. PST on April 26, 2024. Comments may be submitted via three methods:
