§ 21570. CalRecycle--Filing Requirements.
(a) Any operator of a disposal site who is required to have a full solid waste facilities permit and waste discharge requirements pursuant to Public Resources Code, Division 31 and § 20080(f) shall submit an application package for a solid waste facilities permit in duplicate to the EA pursuant to ¶(f). The applicant shall also simultaneously submit one copy of the application form and the Joint Technical Document (JTD) to the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) and one copy of the application form to the director of the local agency that oversees local land use planning for the jurisdiction in which the site is located. The applicant shall ensure demonstration of financial assurances to CalRecycle pursuant to Chapter 6 of this Subdivision.
(b) All other applicants who are required to have a full solid waste facilities permit shall submit an application package for a solid waste facilities permit in duplicate to the EA pursuant to ¶(f) and one copy of the application form to the director of the local agency that oversees local land use planning for the jurisdiction in which the site is located. The applicant shall also simultaneously submit one copy of the application form to the RWQCB.
(d) The application package shall require that information be supplied in adequate detail to permit thorough evaluation of the environmental effects of the facility and to permit estimation of the likelihood that the facility will be able to conform to the standards over the useful economic life of the facility. The application package shall require, among other things, that the applicant and the owner give the address at which process may be served upon them.
(A) Until a countywide or regional agency integrated waste management plan has been approved by CalRecycle, the application shall include statements that: the facility is identified and described in or conforms with the County Solid Waste Management Plan, or otherwise complies with Public Resources Code § 50000; and that the facility is consistent with the city or county General Plan and compatible with surrounding land use, in accordance with Public Resources Code § 50000.5; or
(B) After a countywide or regional agency integrated waste management plan has been approved by CalRecycle, the application shall include a statement that: the facility is identified in either the countywide siting element, the nondisposal facility element, or in the Source Reduction and Recycling Element for the jurisdiction in which it is located; or, that the facility is not required to be identified in any of these elements pursuant to Public Resources Code § 50001; and
[Note: The operator has the option of submitting the preliminary closure plan with the JTD, in which case the EA, RWQCB, and CalRecycle would review it at the same time. If deemed complete by the reviewing agencies, the solid waste facilities permit application package could then be accepted for filing if all other information in the JTD is accepted by the EA. Or the operator can submit a stand alone preliminary closure plan to be deemed complete by reviewing agencies before the application package is submitted to the EA. For CalRecycle purposes, all final closure/postclosure plans are stand alone documents but can be processed jointly with a proposed solid waste facilities permit revision as long as the final plan is determined complete prior to approval of the proposed solid waste facilities permit. The JTD Index prepared for the EA should show where each closure requirement is addressed in the closure/post-closure plan.]
(10) For disposal sites permitted for more than 20 tons-per-day, a ground or aerial survey to be completed at least once every five years or more frequently as determined by the EA. For disposal sites permitted for 20 tons-per-day or less, a ground or aerial survey must be completed at least once every ten years. Survey results must be submitted as a CADD or vector graphics data file including at least two strata, i.e., 1) a stratum showing the base and finished ground surfaces, and 2) a stratum showing the existing and finished ground surfaces. For disposal sites where a change in permitted volume is proposed, a third stratum showing the base and proposed finished ground surface must be included. For each stratum the following information shall be included: site name, stratum name, surface1 name, surface2 name, volume calculation method (grid, composite, section), expansion (cut) factor, compaction (fill) factor, cut volume, fill volume and net volume. All volumes shall be reported in cubic yards. If the base ground surface is uncertain, the operator is allowed to provide the best available information as a substitute for the actual as-built contours. If selecting this substitute method, the operator must provide an explanation of the basis for using the substitute base ground surface. For the purposes of this section the following definitions apply:
(ii) Waste-to-cover ratio, estimated, (volume:volume). The waste-to-cover ratio estimate is a unit-less expression of the proportion of the volumes of waste and cover that comprise a volume of compacted fill material, e.g. 4:1. The cover portion of the waste-to-cover ratio estimate should include only soil or approved daily or intermediate alternative cover that is not considered a waste material, i.e., payment of fees to CalRecycle is not required. The waste portion of the waste-to-cover ratio estimate should include only waste material for which payment of fees to CalRecycle is reported, or
(B) Airspace utilization factor (tons of waste per cubic yard of landfill airspace). The airspace utilization factor (AUF) is the effective density of waste material in the landfill. The AUF is recorded as the total weight of waste material passing over the landfill scales that is placed in a known volume of landfill airspace in a given period of time. The waste portion of the AUF should include only waste material for which payment of fees to CalRecycle is reported.
