3. Department-Wide Automated Procurement Tracking System
4. Requiring Recycled- Content Product Certification for All Purchases
5. Annual Submittal of SABRC Report
6. Staff Recycled-Content Procurement Training
 
Part IV
 1. Is the mission statement of the State agency/large State facility the same as reported in the previous year?
No

If No, what is the new mission statement?

Caltrans Mission:

Caltrans Improves Mobility Across California

Strategic Goals:

- SAFETY -

Provide the safest transportation system in the nation for users and workers.

- MOBILITY -

Maximize transportation system performance and accessibility.

- DELIVERY -

Efficiently deliver quality transportation projects and services.

- STEWARDSHIP -

Preserve and enhance California`s resources and assets.

-SERVICE-

Promote quality service through an excellent workforce.

 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 waste stream should be decreasing since the Integrated Waste Management Plan has been submitted. This is due to new waste diversion programs that have been implemented and a heightened awareness of recycling programs.

When compared to last year`s report, this report does not reflect a decreasing waste stream. As our reporting procedures are becoming more accurate year after year, total tonage disposed and diverted only appears to have increased.

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

Much of the material that Caltrans generates is a result of our contruction and mauintenance 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. Even though much of this material is being diverted from the landfills, the process to capture this information for all projects has recently been implemented. In 2003 and 2004, one construction project per district was selected to determine the amount of C & D waste debris disposed of and diverted from landfills. In 2005, a new procedure was implemented to include the reporting of C & D waste debris disposal and diversion by contractors with each new construction contract. When all of our construction contracts are newer than 2004, we will have achieved accurate reporting of C & D waste disposed of and diverted from landfills.

Other types of materials that are generated by the Department are a result of the fleet of vehicles owned by Caltrans. Some of these materials include motor oil, engine lubricants, anti-freeze, tires, and solvents. Even though these waste materials do not count towards AB 75, they do get recycled. Over the years, the Department has undergone a significant move to lower emissions from our vehicles. Caltrans has termed this "Greening the Fleet".

 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)

Tonnages were determined by reviewing the actual receipts from the independent vendors who supplied recycle and disposal services. In cases where obtaining actual receipts was not feasible, estimates were determined by multiplying the size and weight of containers by the frequency of service.

 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.)

Caltrans recycles toner cartridges, cardboard, newspaper, office paper, telephone books, green waste, sweepings, dirt, tires, wood, metal, concrete, asphalt, batteries, oil, antifreeze, paint, and fluorescent bulbs.

We participate in state surplus and property reutilization programs. Computers and furniture are donated to schools and non-profit organizations when possible.

 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 each district and at headquarters along with a Resource Conservation Senior in the Headquarters Resource Conservation Branch. No additional PYs were allocated for these positions. The recycling coordinators have the responsibility to report on AB 75 in addition to their prior duties.
