January 18, 2001

Solid Waste Local Enforcement Agency

Dear Mr. Schmaeling:

Thank you for sending the Enforcement Advisory Council (EAC) resolutions 00-05 and 00-06 which were passed at the September 28, 2000 EAC meeting.

Resolution 00-05

In this resolution, the EAC recommends and requests that the CIWMB develop a taskforce to address issues regarding handling and disposal of metallic and electronic discards. 

Mark Kennedy, Technical Advisor to Board Member Paparian, is currently developing a position paper on these issues. In the meantime, a working group from CIWMB is planning to meet with the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to discuss the problems with metallic discards and potentially hazardous wastes and determine how these materials should be managed at solid waste facilities. We will make every effort to inform the EAC of our progress.

I have attached an annotated summary, prepared by Mark Kennedy, of recent articles, events and websites concerning electronic waste. Should you have additional questions about metallic and electronic discards, please contact Mr. Bob Holmes at (916) 341-6376.

Resolution 00-06

The EAC requested that the CIWMB include representation of the EAC and Enforcement Agencies on the taskforce dealing with source separation and 10 % residual waste percentage determinations at transfer operations and facilities. At the EAC meeting, Dennis Ferrier, LEA San Jose, and Sue Markie, CIWMB Enforcement Assistance Section were elected to represent the Enforcement Agencies and the EAC.

Thank you for the opportunity to review and comment on this EAC resolution. Should you have questions, please contact me at (916) 341-6360.
