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.)

Some of the waste stream has begun to decrease since the Integrated Waste Management Plan was submitted. This is due to new waste diversion programs that have been put into practice along with more accurate reporting methods since the implementation of the Integrated Waste Management Plan.

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

At the District Office and the larger field offices, typical office supplies, furniture and equipment are recycled. For example, white paper, mixed paper, beverage containers, cardboard, and toner cartridges are diverted. In 2005, the District Office began utilizing the services of a commercial paper shredding and recycling service to process our used office paper. A cardboard recycling program has been implemented in 2006.

At some of the smaller field offices, the employees are encouraged to recycle the materials mentioned above; but because of their location or relatively small amount of waste generated, the recyclables are not always tracked and therefore may not be included in the report. When appropriate, office furniture and computer equipment are donated to charitable organizations.

 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 within the District Office, which were recycled, the documentation was achieved by reviewing the actual receipts from the independent 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 them 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 A Solid Waste Disposal and Recycling Report (CEM 4401).

 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.)

Business Source Reduction Program: Bulletin boards, toner cartridges, e-mail, e-forms, two-sided copies, laundered shop rags, and preventative maintenance.

Material Exchange: Nonprofit/ school donations, state surplus, property reutilization.

Recycling: Cardboard, glass, plastic, newspaper, office paper (white and mixed), scrap metal, and telephone books.

Organic Management: On-site composting/mulching, and self-haul green waste.

Special Waste Materials: Tires, wood waste, and C& D.

 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 AB75 in addition to their existing duties.
