About Us

The Lassen Regional Solid Waste Management Authority (LRSWMA) is a joint powers agency formed in 1998 by and between the City of Susanville and the County of Lassen.

The Authority is responsible for all aspects of municipal solid waste management within Lassen County and is empowered to grant a franchise for municipal solid waste collection services.

The Authority objectives for the solid waste collection and recycling services are to:

  • Preserve the environment and protect the health, safety and quality of life for the residents of Susanville and Lassen County.

  • Provide for an efficient solid waste management system, which includes collection of solid waste and recyclable materials.

  • Comply with state of California Assembly Bill 939, known as the California Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989, which requires jurisdictions to divert solid waste generated within the County of Lassen from disposal in landfills.

  • Assure that as many generators as possible of solid waste and recyclable materials within the County of Lassen are included in the solid waste collection and recycling system.
