Solid Waste Facility Operation Fact Sheets Now Available!

Date: January 8, 2008

To: All LEAs

California Integrated Waste Management Board staff developed nine fact sheets for local enforcement agencies and solid waste facility operators. The fact sheets cover a range of topics and provide guidance in daily operation of solid waste facilities. The fact sheets that are now available are:

  • Construction and Demolition and Inert Debris Transfer/Processing Facility Do's and Don'ts
  • Litter Control at Solid Waste Facilities, Sites and Operations
  • Load-Checking and Hazardous, Liquid and Special Waste at Transfer and Processing Operations and Facilities
  • Load-Checking for Hazardous Waste at Solid Waste Landfills and Inert Debris Engineered Fill Operations
  • Personal Protective Equipment at Solid Waste Landfills
  • Physical Hazards at Solid Waste Facilities, Sites and Operations
  • Receipt of Medical Waste at Solid Waste Facilities and Operations
  • Scavenging, Salvaging and Storage at Solid Waste Facilities and Operations
  • Compendium of Facts on Solid Waste Facilities and Operations: A complete set of the fact sheets in a binder

The fact sheets were distributed at the State Minimum Standards Training classes that were offered at various locations throughout the State in 2007. Board staff will mail out a set of the fact sheets to each LEA jurisdiction that did not attend one of the State Minimum Standards Training classes.

If you would like to view or print the fact sheets please visit our new Solid Waste Facility Operation Fact Sheets web page. If you would like to order copies of the fact sheets you can use our online order form.

We hope that you find these fact sheets a useful tool.
