Regulation Implementation Guidance

The links below are to information that Local Enforcement Agencies may find helpful in navigating some of the solid waste facility regulations. The information is being provided in response to questions received from Local Enforcement Agencies. Please note that the information, if utilized, should be done so in the context of the regulations. The guidance itself is not enforceable in the same manner as regulations because CalRecycle has not adopted it through the formal rulemaking process (see Government Code sections 11340.5 and 11342.6). The provided information alone should not be used to support any potential Local Enforcement Agency enforcement actions.

Please see the SB 1383 Solid Waste Facilities Frequently Asked Questions page for more guidance on questions commonly asked by facilities and LEAs.

If you are a facility operator, please register for CalRecycle’s Solid Waste Facility Operator listserv to be notified when new guidance is added to this page.
