(e) Each federal entity owning or operating a solid waste landfill in California on or after January 1, 1989, and choosing to provide assurance by using the Federal Certification, shall file the necessary documents with CalRecycle not later than 120 days after the effective date of these amendments or, for new disposal facilities, at the time of application for a solid waste facility permit.
