SB 1016 Implementation

Waste Diversion

Assembly Bill (AB) 75 was passed in 1999 and the State Agency Model Integrated Waste Management Act (Chapter 764, Statutes of 1999, Strom-Martin) took effect on January 1, 2000. The State Agency Model Integrated Waste Management Act (IWMA) mandated that State agencies develop and implement an integrated waste management plan (IWMP).

The provisions of the State agency IWMA require all State agencies and large State facilities to divert at least 50 percent of their solid waste from disposal facilities on and after January 1, 2004. Another requirement of the law is that each State agency and large facility shall submit an annual report to the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) summarizing its yearly progress in implementing waste diversion programs.

In 2008, the Per Capita Disposal Measurement System Act (SB 1016, Wiggins, Public Resources Code Section 42920-42927, Statutes of 2008) was passed. This changed the way State agencies and local governments measure their progress toward meeting the statutory waste diversion mandates. Under this Act, State agencies are still required to maintain the 50 percent waste diversion requirement as mandated by the State agency IWMA. However, with the passage of the Per Capita Disposal Measurement System Act, State agencies and large State facilities use per capita disposal as an indicator of their progress toward meeting the mandate.

State agency annual reports are due May 1 of each year for activities conducted during the prior calendar year
