Integrated Waste Management Disaster Plan

The 1997 Integrated Waste Management Disaster Plan established and set forth the California Integrated Waste Management Board’s (now CalRecycle) role in the State Emergency Services network, including organizational levels and functions, and describes the principles and methods to be applied by the department in carrying out its particular role during emergency operations. This plan also provides guidance to the disaster preparedness planning efforts of local government.
