Public Workshop: Regulation of Composting Facilities--Conditional Waiver of Waste Discharge Requirements 

An Aug.17, 2009, workshop was held in Sacramento on the regulation of composting facilities and conditional waiver of Waste Discharge Requirements. The goal of the workshop was to begin the process of developing a statewide waiver with substantive conditions that would address water quality protection at composting facilities that currently exist or may be constructed.

Updates can be obtained through CalRecycle’s Organic Materials Management listserv, or through the Water Board’s e-mail subscription (check "Composting Operations").
