Los Angeles has made dramatic progress on recycling: we now divert 60% of our trash stream into recycling, the highest city in the nation. What's more, we're aiming for 70%. The Daily News shows one way that we're doing it: with Bureau of Sanitation ambassadors who tour your trash bin with you and show you what you've thrown away that you could recycle. Another route to increased diversion: moving citywide with our multi-family recycling project. Live in an apartment building that doesn't have city recycling yet? You can show your building manager how to get it with the details on this page.
