§ 17380. Authority and Scope.
(a) Article 5.9 sets forth permitting requirements, tier requirements, and minimum operating standards for operations and facilities that receive, store, handle, transfer, or process construction and demolition (C&D) debris and inert debris, as defined herein. C&D debris and inert debris are specific types of solid waste that present a different potential threat to public health and safety and the environment than typical municipal solid waste, thus, can be handled with different regulatory oversight. This Article places operations and facilities that handle C&D debris and inert debris into the board's tiers to provide appropriate regulatory oversight to protect public health and safety and the environment.
(b) This Article is not applicable to operations and facilities that are wholly governed by regulations elsewhere in this Chapter. Operations and facilities that receive, store, handle, transfer, or process construction and demolition debris or inert debris that is commingled with solid waste that does not meet the definition of C&D debris or inert debris shall be regulated as transfer/processing operations or facilities pursuant to Articles 6.0 through 6.35, inclusive, of this Chapter.
(c) This Article is adopted pursuant to and for the purpose of implementing the California Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989 (Act) commencing with section 40000 of the Public Resources Code (PRC), as amended. These regulations should be read together with the Act.
(d) Nothing in this Article limits or restricts the power of any Federal, State, or local agency to enforce any provision of law that it is authorized or required to enforce or administer, nor to limit or restrict local governments from promulgating laws which are as strict as or stricter than the regulations contained in this Article. However, no local government may promulgate laws which are inconsistent with the provisions of this Article.
(e) No provision in this Article shall be construed as relieving any owner, or operator from obtaining all required permits, licenses, or other clearances and complying with all orders, laws, regulations, reports, or other requirements of other regulatory or enforcement agencies, including, but not limited to, local health agencies, Regional Water Quality Control Boards, Department of Toxic Substances Control, air quality management districts or air pollution control districts, local land use authorities, and fire authorities.
(f) No provision of this Article is intended to affect the rights or duties of any party to, or in any way influence the interpretation of, any franchise agreement between a local government and its franchisee, any other agreement among any parties, or any local ordinance with respect to any aspect of solid waste handling, including without limitation solid waste collection, transportation, processing, and storage, and solid waste disposal.
(g) This Article does not apply to persons who generate C&D debris or inert debris in the course of carrying out construction, remodeling, repair, demolition or deconstruction of buildings, roads and other structures (collectively, “construction work”) at the site of the construction work or to persons who own the land, buildings and other structures that are the object of the construction work, provided that such persons do not accept at the site any C&D debris or inert debris that is generated at any other location, unless it will be used in the construction work, and provided further that such persons do not allow C&D debris or inert debris, other than C&D debris or inert debris that is used in the construction work, to remain on the site of the construction work after the construction work is completed. For example, public works agencies constructing roads and bridges, road repair, airport runway construction, bridge and roadway work, levee work, flood control work, or landslide debris cleanup, and public or private contractors demolishing or constructing buildings are not subject to these regulations during the course of the construction work.
