Part III--State Agency Waste Reduction and Recycling Program Worksheet

Instructions

State agencies and large State facilities should use the following instructions to complete Part III (note that those completing a "modified IWMP" do not complete this section).

You may find CalRecycle’s publication entitled Conducting a Diversion Study—A Guide for California Jurisdictions helpful in determining tonnages for program activities. Workshops were conducted in March and April 2000 and again in 2002, to help State agencies determine diversion rates and complete an IWMP.

You do not need to submit your analyses used in arriving at diversion and generation figures entered on the worksheet. However, you are responsible for providing documentation and records if a review is needed by CalRecycle to verify your figures.

Remember: When identifying programs within your IWMP, a total diversion amount for all facility locations should equal or exceed .1 ton. You are not required to list any program activity that generates less than that amount, but you are encouraged to do so.

Diversion and disposal activities for all projects (e.g., construction, demolition, and park renovation) need to be included in the final calculation of total tonnage generated. The State agency with project authority is responsible for including these diversion and disposal tonnages, regardless of who performs the work (e.g., State agency, contractor, nonprofit organization).

Section 1: Program Activities, Rows 1–77

Download Part III Worksheet, Section 1: Program Activities

Columns B1, B2, B3, Rows 1–73
If your State agency or large State facility has programs other than those listed that are existing or are proposed for implementation, note them in the blank rows under the appropriate program activity areas in Column B1. Identify all your agency’s existing programs with an "X" in Column B2. Identify the proposed programs with an "X" in Column B3.

Column C (Projected Tonnage, 2000), Rows 1–73

  1. In Column C, Rows 1–73, enter the amount of material anticipated to be diverted, for every existing program activity at your State agency or large State facility.
  2. Row 74 (Total Tonnage Diverted): Total all rows and enter the sum.
  3. Row 75 (Total Tonnage Disposed): Enter the amount of waste that is projected for disposal in calendar year 2000 by your State agency or large State facility at a disposal facility, or that is being collected by a waste hauler for disposal. Use any available actual data in calculating this amount.
  4. Row 76 (Total Tonnage Generated): Add figures from Row 76 and Row 77 (total tonnage generated = total tonnage diverted + total tonnage disposed).
  5. Row 77 (Overall Diversion Percentage): Divide the number in Row 74 (Total Tonnage Diverted) by the number in Row 76 (Total Tonnage Generated). Multiply the result by 100.

Columns D, F, H, J, L, N (Proposed Tonnage for 2001–2006), Rows 1–73
The purpose of estimating proposed diversion tonnage is to help State agencies and large State facilities focus on the programs that will achieve the greatest amount of diversion, while using the least amount of energy and resources. The achievement of the 50 percent diversion goal, therefore, becomes more readily attainable.

In arriving at figures for these columns, take into account the information entered into previous columns. For example, in determining the proposed tonnage diverted for recycling of beverage containers in 2002 (Row 16, Column F), take into account the projected tonnage for 2000 and the proposed tonnage for 2001.

It is important to complete the proposed diversion tonnage through the calendar year 2006 to show which programs the State agency/large State facility will emphasize to meet the waste diversion goals of 25 percent by 2002 and 50 percent by 2004.

  1. In Columns D, F, H, J, L, and N, Rows 1–73 (pages 8–10), provide proposed tonnages for each identified diversion program.
  2. Row 74 (Total Tonnage Diverted): For each of the six columns, total all rows and enter the sum.
  3. Row 75 (Total Tonnage Disposed): For each of the six columns, subtract the figure in Row 74 (Total Tonnage Diverted) from the figure in Row 75, Column C (total projected tonnage disposed for 2000).
  4. Row 76 (Total Tonnage Generated): For the each of the six columns, add figures from Row 74 and Row 75 (total tonnage generated = total tonnage diverted + total tonnage disposed).
  5. Row 77 (Overall Diversion Percentage): Divide the number in Row 74 (Total Tonnage Diverted) by the number in Row 76 (Total Tonnage Generated). Multiply the result by 100.

Rows E, G, I, K, M, O (Actual Tonnage), Rows 1–73
As it becomes available, information from Rows E, G, I, K, M, and O is intended to be used in the required annual report updates. Having a format early in the process and using it at the appropriate time will enable a State agency or large State facility to easily provide needed information by April 1 of the required reporting years, commencing in 2002. Rows 74–77 should be calculated as per steps 2–5 above.

Section 2: Promotional Programs, Rows 78–106

Download Part III Worksheet, Section 2: Promotional Activities  

Column B, Rows 78–106
List additional existing or proposed promotional programs your agency has.

Column C (Existing), and Columns D, F, H, J, L, N (Proposed), Rows 78–106
Put an "X" in Column C if a promotional program exists in 2000. Put an "X" in Columns D, F, H, J, L, and/or N, if a promotional program is proposed for any year from 2001 through 2006.

Columns E, G, I, K, M, O (Implemented), Rows 78–106
In future years, indicate whether the proposed program has been implemented by putting an "X" in the appropriate column.

Section 3: Procurement Activities, Rows 107–126

Download Part III Worksheet, Section 3: Procurement Activities  

Column B, Rows 119–126
List additional existing or proposed procurement activities your agency has.

Column C (Existing) and Columns D, F, H, J, L, N (Proposed), Rows 107–126
Put an "X" in Column C if procurement of recycled-content products exists for the year 2000. Put an "X" in Columns D, F, H, J, L, and/or N if procurement of recycled-content products is proposed. Procurement activities should be coordinated through the State Agency Buy Recycled Campaign (SABRC). For more information on this program, see the SABRC Web site.

Columns E, G, I, K, M, O (Implemented), Rows 107–126
In future years, indicate whether the proposed program has been implemented by putting an "X" in the appropriate column
