2008 Solid Waste Permit Process and CEQA Refresher Training Videos

This two-day training highlighted the solid waste facility (SWF) permit process with emphasis on the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) linkages on the website and was offered to local enforcement agencies (LEA), Integrated Waste Management Board (now CalRecycle) staff, solid waste facility operators, planners, and consultants. The training was done in partnership with volunteers from various county environmental health LEAs and CIWMB staff using PowerPoint presentations and group activities to engage the audience and provide an interesting and informational training.

The CEQA training was conducted almost exclusively using group exercises. The group exercises did not get video recorded. Therefore, this video training does not provide detailed training on CEQA. References provided in this training for CEQA include:

  • California Environmental Resources Evaluation System (CERES)--an information system developed by the California Natural Resources Agency to facilitate access to a variety of electronic data describing California's rich and diverse environments.
  • A compact disc (CD) was provided to all participants containing the 2008 CEQA and SWF Permit Process Training Manual and Appendices. If you would like to receive a copy of this CD, please contact the CIWMB's LEA Support Services at (916) 341-6400.
