Section 18744. Facility Capacity Component.
(a) For the initial SRRE the Solid Waste Facility Capacity Component shall identify and describe all existing permitted solid waste landfills and transformation facilities within the jurisdiction. This description shall contain the following:

(1) identification of the owner and operator of each permitted solid waste disposal facility;

(2) quantity and waste types of solid waste disposed;

(3) permitted site acreage;

(4) permitted capacity;

(5) current disposal fees; and

(6) for solid waste landfills, remaining facility capacity in cubic yards and years.

(b) The Solid Waste Facility Capacity Component shall include a solid waste disposal facility needs projection which estimates the additional disposal capacity, in cubic yards per year, needed to accommodate anticipated solid waste generation within the jurisdiction for a 15-year period commencing in 1991.

(1) The solid waste disposal facility capacity needs projection for the initial SRRE shall be calculated based upon the solid waste generation projection conducted in accordance with section 18722, of Article 6.1 of this Chapter.

(2) The disposal capacity needs projection for the 15 year period shall be calculated using the following equation:

ADDITIONAL CAPACITY Year
n = [(G + I) - (D + TC + LF + E)]Year n

where:

G = The amount of solid waste projected to be generated in the jurisdiction;

I = The amount of solid waste which is expected to be imported to the jurisdiction for disposal in permitted solid waste disposal facilities through interjurisdictional agreement(s) with other cities or counties, or through agreements with solid waste enterprises, as defined in section 40193 of the Public Resources Code.

D = The amount diverted through successful implementation of proposed source reduction, recycling, and composting programs.

TC = The amount of volume reduction occurring through available, permitted transformation facilities.

LF = The amount of permitted solid waste disposal capacity which is available for disposal in the jurisdiction, of solid waste generated in the jurisdiction.

E = The amount of solid waste generated in the jurisdiction which is exported to solid waste disposal facilities through interjurisdictional agreement(s) with other cities, counties or states, or through agreements with solid waste enterprises, as defined in section 40193 of the Public Resources Code.

n = each year of a 15 year period commencing in 1991. [iterative in one year increments]

(c) The Solid Waste Facility Capacity Component shall include discussions of:

(1) The solid waste disposal facilities within the jurisdiction which will be phased out or closed during the short-term and medium-term planning periods and the anticipated effect from such phase-out or closure on disposal capacity needs of the jurisdiction.

(2) Plans to establish new or expanded facilities for the short-term and medium-term planning periods and the projected additional capacity of each new or expanded facility.

(3) Plans to export waste to another jurisdiction for the short-term and medium-term planning periods and the projected additional capacity of proposed export agreements.

Section 18746. Funding Component.
(a) The Funding Component shall demonstrate that there is sufficient funding and allocation of resources for:

(1) program planning and development;

(2) implementation of programs in order to comply with the requirements of section 41780 and 41780.1 of the Public Resources Code.

(b) The Funding Component shall provide cost estimates for component programs scheduled for implementation in the short-term planning period.

(1) The Funding Component shall identify revenue sources sufficient to support the component programs.

(2) The Funding Component shall identify sources of contingency funding for component programs.

Section 18748. Integration Component.
(a) The Integration Component shall explain how the Source Reduction, Recycling, Composting, and Special Waste components combine to achieve the 25 and 50 percent mandates specified in Public Resources Code sections 41780 and 41780.1. The Integration component shall include, but is not limited to, the following:

(1) a description of the solid waste management practices which fulfill the legislative goals of promoting integrated solid waste management in the following order of priority:

(A) source reduction;

(B) recycling and composting; and

(C) environmentally safe transformation and environmentally safe land disposal of solid wastes;

(2) an explanation of how the jurisdiction has integrated the components to maximize the use of all feasible source reduction, recycling and composting options;

(3) an explanation of how the components jointly achieve the diversion mandates in section 41780 and 41780.1 of the Public Resources Code; and

(4) an explanation of how priorities between components were determined, and

(5) and explanation of whether the jurisdiction has been designated, or plans to apply for designation, as a California Integrated Waste Management Board Recycling Market Development Zone.

(b) An integrated schedule shall be submitted in the Integration Component which shall include the following:

(1) a calendar scheduling all implementation tasks for new and expanded programs, commencing after the effective date of the Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989 through the short-term planning period, as identified in the components specified in sections 18733(a) and 18740 of this Article. The schedule shall include a short descriptive title for each task, the entity implementing the task, the task start date and milestone dates, and a schedule for funding source availability.
