§ 18756.5. Strategies for Disposing of Solid Waste in Excess of Capacity When New or Expanded Sites Are Not Available.
(a) The Siting Element shall provide an analysis describing the reasons why there are not available locations for establishing new or expanding existing solid waste disposal facilities within each county or regional agency included in the Siting Element. This analysis shall include a determination of whether the inability to establish new or to expand existing solid waste disposal facilities is due to the lack of locations with the appropriate physical or environmental site characteristics or because of other considerations; and,
(b) If new or expandable solid waste disposal facilities are not available, or are not sufficient to meet countywide or regionwide needs, each county and regional agency shall include strategies for disposing of solid waste. The discussion of strategies shall include, but is not limited to, the following:
(1) A description of the types (residential, commercial, industrial, and special) and quantities in cubic yards and in tons of waste in excess of remaining volumetric capacity of existing solid waste disposal facilities;
(2) A description of the diversion or export programs which will be implemented to safely handle and divert or dispose of excess solid waste. The description shall identify the existing solid waste disposal facilities, including those outside of the county or regional agency, that will be used to implement these strategies. The description shall document how the proposed programs shall provide the county or regional agency with sufficient disposal capacity to meet the required minimum of 15 years of combined permitted disposal capacity as described in CCR 18755(a) of this article.
