Holding a Bullocks shopping bag, Armando strolled through the Van Nuys neighborhood near the corner of Tyrone Avenue and Bessemer Street. It was just after 6 a.m. "This area used to be good," he said, gesturing dismissively at the homes and apartment buildings. "Now there are too many people." He puts down his bag, half filled with garbage, and sighs. "Every day I am out here," he said, "I see a different face." Armando was not there to put out the garbage that morning. He was collecting it.

After a sharp debate over past unequal treatment of rich and poor areas in the selection of landfill sites, the Los Angeles City Council on Friday tentatively approved a pact with the county to jointly develop a regional garbage dump in Elsmere Canyon in the Santa Clarita Valley. Other issues raised during the 90-minute debate were concessions, if any, that would be made to the city of Santa Clarita and whether the new dump would take the steam out of city recycling efforts.
