 3 .  What waste diversion programs are currently in place and what waste diversion programs were implemented in 2001 to meet the waste diversion goals?

In 2001, Caltrans District 7 implemented a TONER CARTRIDGE Recycling Program. Employees were electronically notified about the program and collection sites. Waste diversion programs in effect prior to 2001 are Paper, Cardboard and Scrap Metal as well as other materials listed in Annual Summary Report.

 4 .  How were the amounts of materials disposed and diverted, that were entered into the Annual Report, determined (e.g. waste assessments, per capita generation and extrapolation, actual disposal weights, or actual recycling weights)?

 6 .  Has the State agency/large State facility adopted or changed it's waste reduction policy?


If Yes, what is the new waste reduction policy?

 7 .  What resources (staff and/or funds) did the State agency/large State facility commit toward implementing it's Integrated Waste Management Plan in 2001 to help meet the waste diversion goals?
