Recycling on the Fox Lot

Waste reduction and diversion are a crucial environmental goal on the Fox lot in Los Angeles. In order to maximize diversion rates, a single stream waste system is used. Only food and wet waste are separated – all other waste is sorted by hand by Fox’s waste hauler, Athens. Athens provides Fox with monthly audits. Athens’s operations and diversion rates are in turn audited by the City of Los Angeles. On an annual basis, 2,724.1 tons of waste are generated on the Fox lot. 416.7 tons are sent to landfill – a waste diversion rate of 84.7%. In addition, 87.5 tons of food waste are sent to a commercial composting program as part of a program with the City of Los Angeles.
