Impact of San Diego's Mandatory Recycling Ordinance on Meeting the= California 50% Recycling Goal

Richard V. Anthony GrassRoots Recycling Network

ABSTRACT When AB 939 "The Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989" was chaptered into law, the Statewide recycling rate was 12%. The year 1990 was set as the= base year. 1995 was a set as a target for the first 25% of the resources to be diverted. The year 2000 is the date for the 50% target. Today the= Statewide average is around 30%.

In San Diego, one reason landfill tonnage's are down is that most of the cities have attained 40% diversions and beyond. The County Recycling Plan, initiated by then Supervisor Susan Golding in 1988, called for a 30%= diversion of resources from County Landfills. One aspect of this plan was to use landfill fees to pay for trucks and bins. The County granted these to the cities and their contractors to begin the first residential and commercial recyclable materials' collections.=20

The County put a ban on the burial of designated recyclables at County Landfills into effect in 1992. Wasted resources disposed of at County Landfills dropped from 2.4 million tons in 1990 to 1.3 million tons in 1993, more than 45%. This program was recognized in 1990, by the California Department of Conservation, Division of Recycling as the best in the State, and by the National Recycling Coalition in 1993 as the best in the nation.

The public sees recycling as a resource management issue. In some Cities,= the public has voted to pay for the opportunity to recycle discarded resources. The increased availability of these recovered materials has created= thousands of new jobs and businesses. This is a hundred times more jobs than the= number of jobs supported by the land filling of these resources. They have started these businesses to provide the collection, processing, transportation, and remanufacturing of products related to the recovered metal, glass, fiber, plastic and organics. =20

Most of us who recycle think, we can at least diminish our impact on the planet by putting back some of what we have used. Some of the more= successful and cost effective recycling and composting programs found anywhere in the nation exist here in San Diego County. San Diego is a major provider of secondary resources to local, Mexican and Pacific Rim industries. =20

INTRODUCTION California began planning for the proper disposal of discards in 1974. = State legislation required each County to prepare a Waste Management Plan. These plans were to be approved locally and by the newly created Waste Management Board. In 1989, "The Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989" was enacted= to require the Cities to prepare source reduction and recycling plans. These plans are to show how the Cities and Counties would comply with the State goals. These goals are 25% diversion of waste discards from landfill= disposal by 1995 and 50% diversion by the year 2000. San Diego County led the State= in 1987 when the Board of Supervisors mandated, that there will be a 30% diversion by 1994, of materials disposed of in the landfills. The local= goal was exceeded through the use a ten point plan that included the potential of banning designated recyclables from the landfill. The result has been= public acceptance, increased diversions and new business opportunities.=20

California Law When AB 939 "The Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989" was chaptered into California law, the Statewide recycling rate was 12%. The State set the= year 1990 as the base year. The Cities and the Counties were given five years= to reach the goal of 25% diversion of waste discards from landfill disposal. The year 2000 was set as the date for 50% of the base year materials to be diverted from the landfill. Formula adjustments cover growth and economic conditions. The Statewide recycling average for California to date (1/98)= is 30%.

The law requires each City and each County unincorporated area to prepare a Source Reduction and Recycling Element for the Countrywide Integrated Waste Management Plan. These elements must be approved by the City Council, the County Board of Supervisors, and the State Integrated Waste Management= Board. The plans show how the local agency will attempt to reach the 50% diversion goal by the year 2000.

Many in the industry including the former head of the Environmental= Protection Agency, Winston Porter, claim that a 30% diversion is the maximum cost effective recycling rate that can be attained. Others like the GrassRoots Recycling Network advocate a " zero waste or darn close" goal. In San Diego from the period of 1987 through 1994, the County of San Diego Solid Waste Division embarked on a major recycling program that for its time was recognized as a national leader in resource conservation.

San Diego County Recycling Plan In San Diego, landfill tonnage's are down and most of the cities have attained 40% diversions and beyond. The County Recycling Plan, initiated by then Supervisor Susan Golding in 1988, called for a 30% diversion of= resources from County Landfills. The county wide recycling rate on 1988 was about= 12%. Only a few Cities provided recycling services.

The ten point plan was designed to crawl before walking, and walk before running. The development of data bases and infrastructure including= financing and legal issues had to be addressed. The plan became the basis of the= State law (AB 939 "The Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989"). The components= of the County of San Diego Recycling Plan include: =B7 Determine the types and amounts of materials discarded, their market= value and potential buyers, =B7 Review solid waste ordinances throughout the nation as well as the= County ordinance, and revise to mandate recycling, =B7 Review and revise the planning ordinance to allow the siting of= collection and processing centers and new industry to consume recycled materials, =B7 Develop a County education and information program, =B7 Revise the County purchasing procedures to increase recycled material= use, =B7 Encourage new industry to come to town and encourage existing industry= to convert to recycling feedstock, =B7 Develop in-house recycling systems, =B7 Develop recycling systems at all Solid Waste Facilities, =B7 Provide grants to assist cities and industries to provide recycling services, =B7 Assess the feasibility of alternative technologies. One aspect of this plan was to use landfill fees to pay for trucks and bins that were in turn granted to the cities and their contractors to begin the first residential and commercial recyclable materials' collections. After four years of plan implementation the following was achieved:=20 =B7 Waste composition and tonnages were established for all disposal sites= in the County.=20 =B7 A mandatory recycling ordinance was established in 1991 banning certain designated recyclables from County landfill. =B7 The Board of Supervisors approved the planning and zoning ordinance revisions. =B7 A County education and information program was established which= included a hot line and K-12th grade curriculum guides that were distributed to all teachers and schools in the county with in-service training included. =B7 The Board of Supervisors approved the County purchasing procedures to encourage the use of recycled oil, tires and paper. =B7 A Plastic Recycling Task force was created to help local recyclers find markets for several types of plastic. The State approved a Recycling Market Development Zone. =B7 An industry standard office paper, and beverage container recycling collection system was established. =B7 Recycle material collection programs were established at all landfills= and rural transfer stations. =B7 A technical assistance grant program was initiated, to disburse over $3 million in grants over three years, to provide funds for recycling services= to cities and industries. =B7 The world largest mixed waste Materials Recovery Facility was built.

Mandatory Recycling Ordinance The County Mandatory Recycling Ordinance (MRO) was approved by the Board of Supervisors in June of 1991, to be implemented over a three and one half= year implementation schedule. As set forth in the County Code (Title 6, Division 8, Chapter 5), the MRO prohibits disposal of designated recyclables as= refuse at County solid waste disposal facilities. The MRO does not apply to residents of the City of San Diego and other users of the City of San Diego= 's Miramar landfill. =20 Since the MRO was enacted in 1991, waste disposed of in County landfills dropped from a high of 2.49 million tons disposed of in FY 1989/90, to 1.4 million tons disposed of in FY 1993/94.

Waste Haulers delivering solid waste containing designated recyclables are subject to surcharges at County disposal facilities, unless granted an exemption based on their diligent enforcement of the MRO. Loads from cities having adopted and diligently enforcing similar approved recycling= ordinances are also exempt from the surcharges.

Certain designated recyclables are required to be separated from each type= of generator. Single family residents must separate newspaper, steel cans, glass, #1 &#2 plastics (PETE & HDPE), aluminum cans, and clean green yard waste. All these items except yard waste also apply to multi-family residents. =20 Office buildings of more than 20,000 square feet must separate newspaper, office paper, cardboard, glass, aluminum, and steel cans. Restaurants must separate cardboard, steel cans, glass and aluminum. All commercial loads of more than 80% concrete or wood waste are banned from county landfills.

The agreements signed by the cities and haulers also include the following provisions: 1. The MRO requires waste haulers operating within the unincorporated= County to provide collection service for the designated recyclables and prohibits residential, commercial and industrial generators from mixing designated recyclables with refuse prior to collection. =20 2. The distribution of MRO education and literature by haulers two times a year to users of mandated services. 3. Haulers operating within the unincorporated County are required to leave notices on trash containers found containing designated recyclables, and forward to the County names and addresses of those residents who have= received three such notices.

The County has sent residents in the unincorporated areas over 200 Notice of Violation letters for commingling designated recyclable materials with their trash.

Four haulers operating within the unincorporated County implemented MRO programs after the County began MRO enforcement actions against the haulers for not having implemented programs within the time limits dictated by the ordinance.

Although many materials technically may be recyclable, in practice, they cannot be recycled if collection and processing systems do not provide sufficient and reliable materials for market. Accordingly, the County,= through the implementation of the MRO, has encouraged the development of successful recycling operations to facilitate the increased tonnage of marketable recyclables.

The regional enforcement program for FT 1993/94 for the five landfills, ten rural transfer stations and all of the residential, commercial and= industrial customers throughout the County's unincorporated areas was handled on a= random part time basis by one public nuisance abatement officer supervisor. It should be noted that the County recently (4/97) sold the entire waste= disposal system (four landfills, ten transfer stations, and the MRF) to a private company for $185 million in cash.

New Industry and Jobs The public sees recycling as a resource management issue. In some Cities,= the public has voted to pay for the opportunity to recycle discarded resources. The increased availability of these recovered materials has created= thousands of new jobs and businesses. This is a hundred times more jobs than the= number of jobs supported by the land filling of these resources. These businesses have been started to provide the collection, processing, transportation, and remanufacturing of products related to the recovered metal, glass, fiber, plastic and organics. =20

The public sees recycling as a resource management issue. Average collection charges for recyclables are about $2 a month for recyclables and $2 per= month for yardwaste. The public response to the initiation of these new= collection programs was a high participation rate right from the start. There were few complaints about the charges. Most of the Collectors reduced their mixed waste pick up charges to reflect low volumes of materials and lower overall landfill charges.=20 The increased availability of these recovered materials has created= thousands of new jobs and dozens of new businesses. =20

The first level of new jobs were created in the collection and processing of these separated materials. Each collector has built an intermediate processing facility. These facilities take mixed recyclables and separate them into marketable grades of materials. The new jobs range from recycling mangers to fork lift drivers and online sorters. =20

The next level jobs were at the markets. Additional amounts of recovered materials stimulated the need for new personal and facility expansion. New construction jobs, managers, equipment operators and sorters were created.

A third level in job creation has been about new business locating in San Diego to produce products made from recycled material. The most dramatic= has been in the mulch or compost area. Where there were no composting= facilities in 1985, today there are four State permitted composting facilities and another half dozen companies that convert yard wastes into wood fuel and= mulch soil cover. Furthermore, a company takes glass and makes it into tiles, several companies that make products out of recycled plastics, one company that makes newspaper into insulation to name a few. Another company who= makes plastic garden equipment discontinued the use of virgin plastic pellets and substituted pellets made from recycled milk (HDPE) containers recovered by local recycling programs. A fourth level in job creation has been in the education and equipment manufacturing fields. Personnel and equipment needed to supply the= processor, markets, manufacturing industry and the support industries is now occurring.

Conclusions Most of us who recycle think, we can at least diminish our impact on the planet by putting back some of what we have used. The closed loop recycling idea provides that opportunity by reducing the impact of ones lifestyles on the environment. Proper behavior creates jobs, sustains the economy and conserves natural resources.

Some of the most successful and cost effective recycling and composting programs found anywhere in the nation exist in San Diego County. San Diego= is a major provider of secondary resources to local, Mexican and Pacific Rim industries. Most of the Cities are very near to the States 50% Recycling= goal by the year 2000.

The transition to this level of recycling was done in a way that leveled the playing field and allowed growth in the community. The mandatory recycling ordinance is one way of institutionalizing a positive habit that will allow many levels of growth in a community and meet the states 50% recycling goal.
