§ 1405.

REGISTRATION CRITERIA

The owner of the facility or the transporter shall include the following information in the application form described in Section 1404.

a.

For Facilities.

i.

The facility meets an overall minimum recovery rate of 65 percent for construction and demolition debris (based on the most recent month), which may include materials used as ADC or bio-mass conversion, provided that the facility can demonstrate that the use as ADC or bio-mass conversion is the highest and best use. The recovery rate will be determined by the total quantity of materials delivered to established recycling and composting markets divided by the total quantity received by the registered facility. Highest and best use for ADC does not include ADC which is generated by intentional crushing or grinding of construction and demolition debris that has not been processed to remove wood, metal, wallboard, glass and other materials for which markets or uses other than ADC are available. Consistent with this section, the Director shall adopt regulations pursuant to Section 1412 to specify how the recovery rate will be calculated and when ADC or bio-mass conversion is considered to be the highest and best use of a particular material.

ii.

The facility has and is implementing a hazardous waste load checking program to minimize hazardous waste accepted at the facility.

iii.

The facility has no outstanding notices of violation from any federal, state or local agency that could affect the permits, authorizations or licenses required for its continued operation.

The reports must include, with respect to San Francisco materials only, the following information; the total quantity of material received at the registered facility, the breakdown of all of the specific recycled commodities, the end use of the recycled commodity (reuse, recycling, composting, ADC, bio-mass conversion) landfill destination for residuals, and the recovery ratio for the report period by processing area.

v.

For each truckload received at a discrete facility processing area, the facility agrees to provide each vehicle with a uniquely numbered receipt specifying, at a minimum, the facility name and processing area, the quantity of material received and the current recovery rate for that processing area. The receipt will also include the identity of the transporter and the permit application number issued by the Department of Building Inspections, if any, associated with that load.

vi.

The facility agrees to comply with the provisions of this Chapter; provide documentation to support the information in the application form, including the Section 1404(b) certification, to the Director upon request; and allow the Director to make inspections of the facility in order to verify the information in the application form and required reports.
