**** Background ****

The California Integrated Waste Management Act (Act), Public Resources Code
(PRC) §40000 et. seq., gives the Department authority to provide for the
protection of public health, safety, and the environment through waste prevention,
waste diversion, and safe waste processing and disposal. PRC §40502 requires
the Department to adopt rules and regulations to implement the Act.

The proposed new regulations cover CalRecycle’s
responsibilities for the development and maintenance of a database of all
household hazardous waste collection events, facilities, and programs within
the state (
Resources Code (PRC) §47203
). This rulemaking provides clarifications and
updates to the existing regulations and has sections on the following topics:
definitions; Form 303 submittals; and material collection and disposition.

As a reminder, all information related to this rulemaking can
