§ 17868.5. Green Material and Vegetative Food Material Processing Requirements.
Green material, as defined in section 17852(a)(21), and vegetative food material, as defined in section 17852(a)(20)(A), must satisfy the following requirements:
(a) The feedstock shall undergo load checking to ensure that physical contaminants are no greater than 1.0 percent of total weight. Load checking shall include both visual observation of incoming waste loads and load sorting to quantify the percentage of physical contaminants and detect receipt of unacceptable feedstock (e.g. feedstock that does not meet the definition of green material or vegetative food material).
(1) A minimum of ten percent of daily incoming feedstock volume or at least one truck per day, whichever is greater, shall be inspected visually. If a visual load check indicates a physical contamination level greater than 1.0 percent, a representative sample shall be taken, physical contaminants shall be collected and weighed, and the percentage of physical contaminants determined. The load shall be rejected if physical contaminants are greater than 1.0 percent of total weight or if the load contains materials that do not meet the definitions of green material in section 17852(a)(21) or vegetative food material in section 17852(a)(20)(A).
(b) Upon request of the EA, and in the presence of the EA, the operator shall take a representative sample of feedstock, physical contaminants shall be collected and weighed, and the percentage of physical contaminants determined.
(c) Facility personnel shall be adequately trained to perform the activities specified in this section.
(d) Any operation or facility using this feedstock shall maintain records demonstrating compliance with this section.
