§ 18810.9. Landfill Disposal Reports: Content, Timing, and Distribution.
(a) The following requirements shall apply to an operator of a permitted landfill:
(1) An operator shall determine the total number of tons of solid waste disposed in each quarter. The tons disposed shall be the same number of tons reported to the Board of Equalization that are subject to the fee pursuant to section 48000 of the Public Resources Code and section 45151 of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
(2) An operator of a facility that does not have to report tons disposed to the Board of Equalization pursuant to section 48007(b) of the Public Resources Codes (as added by Stats. 1999, Chapter 600), is still required to determine the total number of tons of solid waste disposed in each quarter. However, for these facilities, the tons disposed will not have to be reconciled with the tons reported to the Board of Equalization.
(3) An operator of a facility that has been exempted from the fee pursuant to section 48006 of the Public Resources Code is still required to report the total number of tons of solid waste disposed in each quarter. However, for these facilities, the tons disposed will not have to be reconciled with the tons reported to the Board of Equalization that are subject to the fee.
(b) An operator shall track the total tons of solid waste accepted by the landfill and sent off-site for reuse, recycling, or composting.
(c) An operator shall provide the following quarterly information to the agency in which the facility is located. An operator shall keep copies of the quarterly information and all supporting documentation used to prepare the information pursuant to the record keeping requirements in section 18810.4. An operator shall report, by jurisdiction of origin (including host assigned jurisdiction of origin, if applicable), information on the amounts and types of all solid waste specified in this subsection. The operator shall report:
(1) the facility name and Solid Waste Information System (SWIS) number,
(2) the reporting quarter and year,
(3) the total tons of all solid waste and all materials accepted at the facility, excluding soil used on-site,
(4) the total tons of waste reused on-site at the facility, separated as follows:
(A) the total tons of each type of alternative daily cover used during the quarter, and
(B) the total tons of each type of alternative intermediate cover used during the quarter, and
(5) the total tons of solid waste disposed at the landfill.
(d) An operator shall provide quarterly summary information to the agency in which the facility is located. The summary information shall include:
(1) the total tons of soil used as cover or for other on-site uses during the quarter,
(2) the total tons of solid waste accepted by the landfill, excluding soil used on-site,
(3) the total tons of solid waste used on-site, separated as follows:
(A) the total tons of each type of alternative daily cover,
(B) the total tons of each type of alternative intermediate cover, and
(C) the total tons of each type of other beneficial reuse material,
(4) the total tons of solid waste sent off-site for reuse, recycling, or composting,
(5) the total tons of solid waste disposed at the landfill,
(6) the total tons reported to the Board of Equalization subject to the fee pursuant to section 48000 of the Public Resources Code and section 45151 of the Revenue and Taxation Code,
(7) either:
(A) the estimated in-place density achieved at the landfill in units of pounds of waste per cubic yard of waste and the estimated waste-to-cover ratio used at the landfill during the quarter, or
(B) the airspace utilization factor (tons of waste per cubic yard of landfill airspace) for the quarter, and
(This information shall be included in the quarterly report so that the Board may accurately calculate the remaining capacity of the landfill as well as regional and statewide remaining capacity. It is not the intent of this section to subject a landfill to a Notice of Violation should it subsequently be determined that these estimates are unknowingly inaccurate.)
(8) a brief summary of the methods used to determine the jurisdictions of origin.
(e) Upon request, an operator shall provide the agency in which the facility is located with a copy of the Integrated Waste Management Fee Return submitted to the Board of Equalization.
(f) The operator shall provide all quarterly information to the agency by the due dates in section 18810.10.
(g) Upon request by a jurisdiction, an operator shall provide all quarterly information pertaining to the jurisdiction by the due dates in section 18810.10. In lieu of sending quarterly disposal information directly to a jurisdiction, an operator may electronically submit the information to the Board using a format that would allow the Board to make the information available on its web site. In addition to the amounts reported in subsection (c)(3) through (5), a jurisdiction's request for quarterly disposal information may include:
(1) the total tons of each type of other beneficial reuse material (excluding alternative daily cover and alternative intermediate cover),
(2) the total tons of C&D debris/inert debris disposed,
(3) the total tons of each type of designated waste disposed, and
(4) the total tons of disaster waste disposed.
(h) An operator shall send an annual report on disposal reporting methods to the agency in which the facility is located. An operator shall send the annual report by the due date in section 18810.10. An operator shall keep a copy of the annual report in the facility's records pursuant to section 18810.4. The report shall cover each year beginning on January 1 and ending on December 31 and shall include the following:
(1) facility name and Solid Waste Information System (SWIS) number,
(2) operator name,
(3) operator mailing address,
(4) operator telephone number,
(5) operator email address, if available,
(6) the number and type of scales, if applicable,
(7) all volumetric conversion factors used for each vehicle and/or trailer type and/or load type and a description of the method used to determine the conversion factors pursuant to section 18810.2(d)(1) or (e),
(8) the frequency of each type of origin survey,
(9) the percentage of the total tons of disposed waste assigned to each jurisdiction that was based on:
(A) origin information collected during a one-week per quarter survey period as allowed in section 18810.6(b) or 18810.6(c), if applicable, and
(B) volumetric conversion factors rather than actual weight measurements,
(10) the method(s) of determining jurisdiction of origin, including the questions gatehouse attendants ask haulers,
(11) the method(s) used to verify origin information, if applicable,
(12) any restrictions on which jurisdictions may use the landfill,
(13) any differences in landfill tipping fees based on jurisdiction of origin,
(14) a listing or description of the computer program(s) or method used to track waste tonnage and origin information,
(15) the method(s) used to track the amounts of alternative daily cover, alternative intermediate cover, and other beneficial reuse materials used at the facility,
(16) the method(s) used to track C&D debris/inert debris loads, if applicable,
(17) the designated waste types accepted and method(s) of tracking designated wastes, if applicable,
(18) the method(s) used to track disaster waste loads, if applicable,
(19) the days and hours of operation, including all significant variations in the schedule during the reporting year, and
(20) either:
(A) the calculated in-place waste density achieved at the landfill (in pounds of waste per cubic yard of waste) and a description of the method used to calculate in-place waste density achieved at the landfill, and the calculated waste-to-cover ratio used at the landfill and a description of the method used to calculate the waste-to-cover ratio(s) used at the landfill or
(B) the airspace utilization factor (tons of waste per cubic yard of landfill airspace) and a description of the method used to calculate the airspace utilization factor.
(This information shall be included in the annual report so that the Board may accurately calculate the remaining capacity of the landfill as well as regional and statewide remaining capacity. It is not the intent of this section to subject a landfill to a Notice of Violation should it subsequently be determined that these estimates are unknowingly inaccurate).
(i) If the Board determines that an operator has inaccurately reported alternative daily cover, alternative intermediate cover, other beneficial reuse, or other diversion tonnage, that should have been reported as disposal, the operator shall revise its reported disposal tonnage to reflect the Board's determination and pay the fee required by section 48000 of the Public Resources Code.
(j) If an operator amends disposal reporting information, the operator is only required to provide the amended information to the agency once per quarter (the operator shall still allow access to records in accordance with section 18810.4). An operator is not required to provide amended disposal information for reporting years once the Board has completed the biennial review cycle for those years pursuant to section 41825 of the Public Resources Code.
