View/Edit/Verify your Facility Data

FacIT data and tools are only as accurate/useful as the information provided by facility operators. This page allows operators to view and update their data currently in the database, or add a new facility or activity. See the glossary for definitions of technical terms.

How to get started on viewing and editing your data:

You can view the FacIT data about your facility two ways:

  • To view what the public sees about your facility: go to the Detailed Facility Search page and enter the name of the facility, or select the county where your facility is located and select the search button to see a list of all facilities. Once you find your facility, select your facility name. If your facility is not listed, please send your facility name, a description of the activities at your facility and your contact information including a phone number to FacIT@calrecycle.ca.gov and we will assist you in adding your facility to our inventory list.
  • To view your complete data set as stored on our secure FacIT server: go to the facility operator log on page and enter your unique password “Key”.
    • If you own or operate a recycling and/or waste management facility in California and do not have an access password, please sign up for one on the CalRecycle WebPass home page.  Once you have created a CalRecycle WebPass, please email us at FacIT@calrecycle.ca.gov and we will assist you in accessing your account.
    • Steps in the WebPass process:
      • Sign up for a WebPass on the CalRecycle WebPass home page.
      • Send us an email at FacIT@calrecycle.ca.gov and we will set up access to your account.
      • The operator can then use the WebPass and a chosen password on the operator log on page and access their own facility data on the secure data server.
      • Thereafter, a facility operator can use the password at any time to enter, view or edit their own facility data.

How to edit and verify your facility, activities or materials data:

  • In order to maintain data accuracy and eliminate obsolete information, facility operators are requested to update their FacIT listing information at least annually or whenever changes are made to your operations.
  • Go to the facility operator log on page and enter your WebPass and password.
  • Please check all the data fields for all tabs and make corrections or changes as needed. Remember to use the save data button at the bottom of every data page to ensure your changes are saved.
  • When all the settings and data meet your needs and look satisfactory, select the “VERIFY” button at the top of your data home page before exiting.
  • If you need assistance or have a question, please email FacIT@calrecycle.ca.gov. CalRecycle is also interested in any information about facilities that will assist us in maintaining the most accurate data.

How to add a new facility, or delete a closed one:

If your facility is not yet listed in the FacIT inventory, or has ceased operation, please email your name and phone number to FacIT@calrecycle.ca.gov for assistance. See the add a facility web page for more information on new sites.

Non-Facility Operators

If you are not a facility operator but have facility data you think could help improve FacIT, please email us at FacIT@calrecycle.ca.gov.
