County To Impose Franchise Agreement On Trash Haulers

county_sealBy Leon Worden/

The free-for-all is over.

By July 1, Los Angeles County will require providers of commercial trash bins and roll-off boxes to sign a nonexclusive county franchise agreement if they want to serve unincorporated customers, including customers in the unincorporated parts of the Santa Clarita Valley.

The county already requires residential waste haulers to sign a franchise agreement, but no such license has been needed to provide commercial trash dumpsters or the big containers typically seen on construction jobs.

(Residential and commercial trash providers operating in the city of Santa Clarita hold exclusive city franchise agreements, and roll-off companies operating in the city have needed nonexclusive city franchises since 2006.)

The county says it’s making the move because state recycling rules have gotten stricter.

The current unregulated system “is unable to adapt to changes in state law and customers’ desire for enhanced services,” according to a notice from the county Department of Public Works. A franchise agreement “ensures all customers receive quality service as well as recycling services as mandated by the state,” it says.

State law requires commercial dumpster and roll-off customers to subscribe to recycling services starting July 1, the notice states.

The Public Works department is holding several public meetings with service providers from now to Feb. 1, including one in the Santa Clarita Valley on Saturday, Jan. 28, at 10:30 a.m. at the Castaic Regional Sports Complex, 31230 N. Castaic Road.
