§ 18815.5. Reporting Requirements for Transfer/Processors.
(a) In their report to the Department, a transfer/processor shall provide the following information, using the methods described in section 18815.9 of this article:
(1) For all tons accepted:
(A) From another transfer/processor, report the tons of each of the following streams: solid waste, disaster debris, designated waste, green material potential beneficial reuse, and all other potential beneficial reuse accepted from each facility. Report the sending facility's contact information and RDRS number, if applicable.
(B) For direct-hauled material, report the total aggregated tons of each of the following streams: solid waste, disaster debris, designated waste, green material potential beneficial reuse, and all other potential beneficial reuse. The tonnages for solid waste and green material potential beneficial reuse shall be further divided by jurisdiction of origin.
(C) Include accepted residuals generated by a recycling or composting facility or operation that is reporting under the same RDRS number as a transfer/processing facility or operation, pursuant to section 18815.3(d)(4) of this article, in the total tons accepted as direct-hauled, pursuant to subsection (1)(B), assigning the tons to the jurisdiction within which the site is located.
(2) For all tons sent to recyclers, composters, brokers, transporters, or end users pursuant to section 18815.9 of this article:
(A) To a recycling or composting facility or operation with a different RDRS number inside California, report the tons by material type, pursuant to section 18815.9(a) of this article, and their contact information and RDRS number, if applicable.
(B) To an end user, report the tons of each material type, pursuant to section 18815.9(a) of this article, sent to each end user category by region, pursuant to section 18815.3(k) of this article.
(C) To a broker or transporter:
(i) In cases where the final destination of the material is determined by the reporting transfer/processor, report pursuant to subsections (a)(2)(A), (a)(2)(B), and (a)(2)(E).
(ii) In cases where the final destination of the material is not determined by the reporting transfer/processor, report tons of each material type, pursuant to section 18815.9(a) of this article, sent to each broker or transporter and their contact information and RDRS number, if applicable.
(D) To a recycling or composting facility or operation with the same RDRS number, report pursuant to section 18815.9(h) of this article.
(E) To a recycling or composting facility or operation outside California, report the tons of each material type by region.
(3) For all tons sent to transfer/processors or disposal facilities inside or outside California of each of the following streams: recycling and composting, solid waste, disaster debris, designated waste, green material potential beneficial reuse, and all other potential beneficial reuse:
(A) To each transfer/processor or disposal facility, report the tons of each stream, and their contact information and RDRS number, if applicable. Report the percentage of solid waste and green material potential beneficial reuse received from each transfer/processor, and the total percentage of materials that were direct-hauled, pursuant to subsection (a)(1)(B). The percentage that was direct-hauled shall be further divided into the jurisdictions of origin of solid waste and green material potential beneficial reuse.
(B) For all tons of solid waste, the percentage that was direct-hauled, pursuant to subsection (a)(1)(B), shall be divided into source sectors, using methods described in section 18815.9(c) of this article. Source sector shall be reported to the department as a facility-wide estimate.
(C) For all other material sent for potential beneficial reuse to a landfill or other transfer/processor inside or outside California, report the tons sent to each facility by material type, pursuant to section 18815.9(a)(3) of this article, and the facility's contact information and RDRS number, if applicable.
(D) For material sent for recycling to each transfer/processor or disposal facility with a different RDRS number inside California, report the tons by material type, and the facility's contact information and RDRS number, if applicable.
(E) For material sent for recycling to each transfer/processor or disposal facility outside California, report the tons by material type and region.
(b) A transfer/processor shall report to the Department by the following due dates for each reporting period:
(1) Reporting period 1 due May 31,
(2) Reporting period 2 due August 31,
(3) Reporting period 3 due November 30, and
(4) Reporting period 4 due February 28.
(c) With the exception of reporting entities who fail to provide required information, for the purposes of RDRS reporting, the Department shall not require a transfer/processor to submit information regarding the identities of individual haulers when providing jurisdiction of origin, or source sector information to the Department as part of a quarterly report. The Department shall not require a transfer/processor to submit information regarding the identities of individual end users when providing material type or region to the Department as part of their report.
(1) A jurisdiction is not precluded from requiring this information through franchise agreements, contracts, local ordinances, section 41821.5(g) of the Public Resources Code, or other authority it may have.
(2) The Department may require a transfer/processor to submit this information in lieu of an audit, or as part of an audit or administrative proceeding.
(d) Commencing with the first reporting period in 2022, and in each subsequent reporting period thereafter:
(1) A reporting receiving facility that receives material from a “mixed waste organic collection stream” as defined in Section 17402 (a)(11.5) of this division shall, for the purposes of determining the annual average organic content recovery rate for organic waste received from the mixed waste organic collection stream as specified in Sections 18984.3 and 17409.5.1 of this division, report the following to the Department:
(A) The sum of outgoing weights of organic waste recovered from the mixed waste organic collection stream as determined pursuant to Section 17409.5.1(c)(1) of this division.
(B) The sum of outgoing weights of organic waste from the mixed waste organic collection stream that is sent to disposal as determined pursuant to Section 17409.5.1(c)(2) of this division.
(C) The sum of records in Sections 17414.2(a)(2), 17414.2(a)(3), and 17414.2 (a)(6) of outgoing and incoming weights of material from the mixed waste organic collection stream.
(2) A reporting receiving facility that receives material from a “source separated organic waste collection stream” as defined in Section 17402(a)(26.6) shall report the following to the Department:
(A) The sum of outgoing weights of organic waste recovered from the source separated organic collection stream as determined pursuant to Section 17409.5.1 (d)(1) of this division.
(B) The sum of outgoing weights of organic waste recovered from the source separated organic collection stream as determined pursuant to Section 17409.5.1(d)(2) of this division.

(e) The Department shall determine if a facility meets or exceeds the recovery efficiency percentages as specified in the definition of a “high diversion organic waste processing facility” in Section 18982(a)(33) in the following manner:
(1) The Department shall determine the quarterly recovery efficiency by dividing the total weight of recovered organic waste reported in Subdivision (d)(1)(A) [Recovered Organics (RO)] by the combined total weight of recovered and disposed organic waste reported in Subdivision (d)(1)(A) and Subdivision (d)(1)(B) [Total Available Mixed Waste Organics(TAMWO)]: RO/TAMWO = Recovery Efficiency.
(2) The Department shall use the total weights for the immediately previous four quarters to determine the facility's annual recovery efficiency which shall constitute the annual average mixed waste organic content recovery rate for the purposes of section 18984.3 of this division.
(3) The annual average mixed waste organic content recovery rate shall be determined by using the last four quarterly rates. A new annual average shall be calculated each quarter.
(f) The Department shall determine if a facility meets or exceeds the annual average source separated organic content recovery rates specified for a “designated source separated organic waste facility” as defined in Section 18982(a)(14.5) of this division in the following manner:
(1) The Department shall determine the quarterly recovery efficiency by dividing the total weight of recovered organic waste reported in Subdivision (d)(2)(A)[Recovered Organics (RO)] by the combined total weight of recovered and disposed organic waste reported in Subdivision (d)(2)(A) and Subdivision (d)(2)(B) [Total Available Source Separated Organic Waste (TASSOW)]: RO/TASSOW = Recovery Efficiency.
(2) The Department shall use the total weights for the immediately previous four quarters to determine the facility's annual recovery efficiency which shall constitute the annual average source separated organic content recovery rate for the purposes of Sections 18982(a)(14.5) and 18998.1 of this division. A new annual average shall be calculated each quarter.
(g) A reporting receiving facility subject to the requirements of Section 17409.5.7 shall report the following to the Department:
