SCS Engineers Awarded Contract to Support Commercial and Institutional Recycling Program in the County of Los Angeles

August 8, 2016

SCS Engineers to provide environmental services and technical support to help enhance LA County’s Department of Public Works sustainable materials management.

SCS will provide research and consultation services supporting the County’s waste reduction and recycling practices for businesses, multi-family residences, large venues, County facilities, other public agencies, and more in the Unincorporated County Area. SCS promotes reuse, recycling, and conservation programs, and, more importantly, emphasizes program sustainability by considering the entire life-cycle of products, processes, and systems.

SCS’s responsibilities will 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, and outreach and education.

Today, society recycles more solid waste than ever before. SCS’s recycling and sustainability programs are grounded in models that leverage 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. SCS professionals are providing the strategies and support that will help Public Works integrate its management of solid waste using recycling, reduction, and organics management as essential elements.  Implementing this plan will help the County achieve its health and welfare goals and regulatory requirements, and manage the operational costs of waste disposal.

“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,” said Michelle Leonard, a vice president with SCS Engineers. “Diverting organic material, as well as recyclable items, from the landfills continues to move us closer to a Sustainable Waste Management Future.”
