County Training

DRS Requirements

Disposal Reporting System (DRS) regulations require county disposal report preparers to be trained in DRS requirements related to their specific jobs.

To assist counties in meeting these requirements, CalRecycle staff has developed training materials for county staff to review. As DRS is a state requirement, certain counties may find that local/regional requirements exceed DRS regulation, so it is recommend that managers tailor these presentations to the needs of their staff.
