18812.4. Agency Records: Retention, Access, and Investigations.

(a) An agency shall prepare disposal reporting records and shall:

(1) Include all information, methods, and calculations required by this Article.

(2) Keep quarterly documentation that verifies jurisdiction of origin allocations reported to the Board and jurisdictions pursuant to sections 18812.9(a), (c) and (d).

(3) Use a reasonable method to gather the information, such as locally required or facility specific reporting forms, electronic systems, or the optional paper or electronic reporting forms developed by the Board.

(4) Maintain all records for three years in a usable format, such as on electronic media (computer files) or paper copies.

(5) Allow representatives of involved jurisdictions, haulers, operators, districts, and the Board to inspect the records during normal business hours in a single location within California. Haulers and operators shall only be allowed to inspect records relating to their own operations. An agency is not required to provide records of a jurisdiction’s disposal information for reporting years for which the Board has already completed the biennial review cycle for the applicable jurisdiction pursuant to section 41825 of the Public Resources Code.

(A) Upon a request to review records, the agency shall make the records promptly available for inspection. The agency shall respond to the request within ten days, but may indicate that additional time is necessary to make the records available due to time necessary to search for, collect and examine records to respond to the request. In no case shall the inspection be delayed more than an additional 14 days, unless agreed to by the requestor.

(B) If copies of specific records are requested, either in lieu of inspection or after inspection, the agency shall respond to the request for copies within ten days, but may indicate that additional time is necessary to make the copies due to time necessary to search for, collect, and examine records to respond to the request. In no case shall the copies be delayed more than an additional 14 days, unless agreed to by the requestor. The agency may charge a fee to cover the actual cost of copying. In no case shall the fee exceed ten cents per page, unless local public records act requirements establish another rate.

(C) If an agency believes that a records request includes information that has been labeled confidential or proprietary by the entity providing that information as defined in sections 17044 through 17046, the agency shall inform the Board. The Board shall use the procedures set forth in section 17046 to determine which records, or parts of records, may be inspected.

(b) An agency shall respond to requests for clarification regarding their records within ten days. Requests must be specific and clearly stated in writing.

(c) The Board may investigate all information, methods, and calculations pursuant to this Article. If the Board determines that any information is inaccurate, the Board may require corrected information.

(d) If an agency fails to comply with this section, and that failure prevents the Board from accurately determining the agency’s level of Source Reduction and Recycling Element implementation, the Board may initiate the process to issue a compliance order as set forth in section 41825 of the Public Resources Code.

(a) When required by this Article:

(1) An agency shall identify a jurisdiction by providing its name and specifying whether it is a city, an unincorporated county, or a region.

(2) If expressly allowed by the region, an operator may identify waste from a region formed pursuant to sections 40970 through 40975 of the Public Resources Code as originating in that region, without specifying the individual cities or unincorporated counties, unless otherwise required by the Board.

(3) An agency shall identify waste imported from outside California by specifying the state, country, or Indian country of origin.

(b) Nothing in this Article shall prevent an agency from enacting ordinances or other measures to ensure that operators and haulers provide additional jurisdiction of origin information.

Note:

Authority cited: Section 40502, Public Resources Code.
Reference: Section 41821.5, Public Resources Code.


18812.6. Frequency of Origin Surveys.

(a) At all permitted solid waste facilities, origin surveys shall be conducted continuously, each day of facility operation, for every load, except as described in subsections (b), (c), and (d).

(b) An operator of a permitted solid waste facility located in a rural city or county, as defined in sections 40183 and 40184 of the Public Resources Code, may conduct origin surveys as specified in subsection (a) or may conduct origin surveys during the following standard survey weeks each year: March 8 through March 14, June 8 through June 14, September 8 through September 14, and December 8 through December 14 (unless an agency has received Board approval to use alternative weeks pursuant to subsections [e] and [f]). During the standard survey weeks, every load of solid waste shall be surveyed to determine jurisdiction of origin.

(c) At all permitted solid waste facilities, origin surveys of each uncompacted load of waste with a volume of 12 cubic yards or less may be conducted as specified in subsection (a) or may be conducted during the following standard survey weeks each year: March 8 through March 14, June 8 through June 14, September 8 through September 14, and December 8 through December 14 (unless an agency has received Board approval to use alternative weeks pursuant to subsections [e] and [f]). Daily origin surveys shall be conducted for all other loads as specified in subsection (a).

(d) Origin surveys are not required if:

(1) a facility is located in a Board-approved region, the region has authorized the operator to assign all waste tonnage to the region, and the Board does not otherwise require the region to assign waste to the individual cities or unincorporated counties of the region, or

(2) a city or county in which a facility is located authorizes the facility operator to assign all waste tonnage to that city or county.

(e) If the standard origin survey weeks in subsections (b) and (c) are not representative of disposal activity or facility operation, an agency may request alternative survey weeks that are representative of local conditions. During the alternative survey weeks, every load of solid waste specified in subsections (b) and (c), shall be surveyed to determine jurisdiction of origin. If an agency selects origin survey weeks in addition to the standard survey weeks, the additional weeks shall not require Board staff approval as alternative survey weeks. Continuous origin surveys of every load of solid waste during each day of facility operation includes and exceeds the standard survey week, and shall not require Board staff approval as alternative survey weeks.

(f) Prior to using alternative survey weeks, the agency shall:

(1) Provide at least a 30-day notice of the proposed weeks to, and accept and respond to comments from:

(A) haulers and operators of facilities within the boundaries of the agency,

(B) jurisdictions that dispose of waste within the boundaries of the agency, and

(C) Local Task Force established pursuant to section 18761 of this Division.

(2) Submit the responses to comments received and the list of alternative survey weeks to the Board for review and approval. Within 30 working days from receipt of this material, Board staff shall inform the applicant, in writing, that the information provided is complete and accepted for filing, or that the application is deficient and what specific information is required. Board staff shall approve or disapprove of the alternative survey weeks within 60 working days from the date the agency submits a completed package. The agency may appeal the Board staff determination to the Board.

(3) Notify all haulers and operators of approval by Board staff prior to the first alternative survey week.

(g) Nothing in this Article shall prevent an operator from collecting additional information as part of its operation. Nothing in this Article shall prevent an agency from requiring an operator to conduct origin surveys more frequently or to collect additional information, based upon its own authority to impose requirements on that operator.

18812.8. Applicability of Alternative Reporting Systems.

(a) An agency shall comply with the system of requirements and performance standards set forth in this Article. To implement the performance standards, an agency may require haulers or operators to follow procedures in addition to those set forth in this Article, if necessary to address local conditions.

(b) An agency may set up an alternative reporting system that gathers the required information on the amounts and origins of solid waste, and the amounts and origins of alternative daily cover, alternative intermediate cover, and other beneficial reuse by material type from haulers and operators in a different manner than set forth in sections 18808.7 18808.9, 18809.7, 18809.9, 18810.7, 18810.9, 18811.7 and 18811.9. If a system collects at least the required information, during at least the standard origin survey period set forth in section 18812.6, and the system requires disposal information collected to be reported by the same entities, then the system shall not be considered an alternative system, and shall not require Board staff pproval as an alternative system. A system that meets or exceeds all of the minimum requirements using methods specified in this Article, shall not be considered an alternative system, and shall not require Board staff approval as an alternative system. If an agency uses an alternative reporting system, that system shall:

(1) Provide all the information required by this Article.

(2) Provide information as accurate as required by the system in this Article.
