LEA Meetings and Events

LEA Roundtables

In 1992 the California Integrated Waste Management Board (now CalRecycle) initiated the Solid Waste Local Enforcement Agency (LEA) Roundtables to promote more efficient communication and cooperative relationships with the more than 50 LEAs across the state. The roundtable format allows California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) staff and LEAs to meet as peers and to discuss issues of regional concern with statewide implications.

Originally, these CalRecycle-facilitated meetings were designed to disseminate information on program changes and proposed directives from the CalRecycle and to elicit feedback from the LEAs. Over time, in each of the six geographically defined regions, the LEAs have expanded their roles in setting the roundtables' agenda and running the meetings. Each LEA Roundtable appoints a representative to the CalRecycle's Enforcement Advisory Council which in turn forwards policy issues to the California Conference of Directors of Environmental Health's Solid Waste Subcommittee. Each roundtable also volunteers a “training liaison” to coordinate with CalRecycle's Training and Assistance Section to provide input and feedback on both local and statewide training needs.The roundtables and EAC also provide procedural recommendations to CalRecycle staff.

The roundtables meet three times a year--in the fall, winter, and spring.
