Part IV
 1. Is the mission statement of the State agency/large State facility the same as reported in the previous year?
Yes

If No, what is the new mission statement?

 2. How has the waste stream (i.e. those materials disposed in landfills) changed since the Integrated Waste Management Plan was submitted? (Changes include kinds and quantities of materials disposed in landfills.)

The Department is continually looking into other ways to decrease the amount of materials disposed in landfills. The waste stream should begin to decrease due to new waste diversion programs along with more accurate reporting since the implementation of the Integrated Waste Management Plan.

 3. Summarize what waste diversion programs were continued or newly implemented during the report year.

Waste diversion programs are in place to capture mixed paper, beverage containers, cardboard, scrap metal, wood waste, furniture and equipment. Numerous collection containers for "Blue Cart Recycling" are placed throughout the buildings for ease of recycling.

Another source of material that Caltrans generates is a result from our construction and maintenance projects. This construction and demolition (C&D) waste debris can vary in type and amount depending on project description and location. Typical C&D waste debris may include concrete, asphalt, steel, guard railing, and vegetation.

 4. How were the tonnages determined for the materials disposed and diverted? (e.g. waste assessments, per capita generation and extrapolation, actual disposal weights, or actual recycling weights)

Amounts of materials disposed and diverted were determined by a variety of methods. For materials generated throughout the District, which are recycled, the documentation was achieved by reviewing the actual receipts from the vendors who supply this service. In cases where obtaining actual receipts was not feasible, estimates were used by extrapolating the size and weight of containers and multiplying by the frequency of service. For materials, which were disposed of, the primary source for documentation was to extrapolate by determining the approximate average weight of the material in the disposal containers multiplied by the frequency of service. For determining the weights of the C&D debris the construction contractor supplied Caltrans with the information. Weight conversion charts from the CIWMB were also used to convert volumes to tons.

 5. What types of activities are included in each of the reported programs? (The following link of category definitions may assist you in answering this question.)

Source reduction includes recycled toner cartridges. The Department does encourage the use of email, double-sided photocopying, and the reuse of envelopes. While these activities are included in the programs, they do not figure into the diversion calculations. Material Exchange includes furniture and tools donated to schools and charitable organizations. Recycling includes aluminum cans, glass and plastics from Rest Areas and the District Office, cardboard, mixed recycle, and white office paper picked up by the City of Redding. Special Waste includes miscellaneous aluminum and lights poles taken to the scrap yard, cooking oil from the cafeteria. Hazardous Materials include e-waste, batteries, used oil, antifreeze, solvent, carb cleaner, fluorescent lamps and bulbs.

 6. Has the State agency/large State facility adopted or changed its waste reduction policy?
No

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 its Integrated Waste Management Plan during the report year to help meet the waste diversion goals?

The Department has identified one recycling coordinator in the District to gather information and report on AB 75. No additional PY`s are allocated for these positions. The recycling coordinators have the responsibility to report on AB 75 in addition to their normal duties.
