Metro Upcycling Project Los Angeles

In case you were unable to attend Metro’s Upcycle Web Forum on Thursday, August 13th, the event recording and resources mentioned in the Forum are available at

Once you have seen some of our waste diversion efforts and materials that could be available for repurposing at Metro, we hope this generates ideas you think we should pursue. Your ideas are critical to helping reimagine a sustainable and resilient future for Metro and LA County.
