41700.  Each county shall prepare a countywide siting element which

part.



41701.  Each countywide siting element and revision thereto shall
include, but is not limited to, all of the following:

handle solid wastes generated with the county that cannot be reduced,
recycled, or composted.
   (c) The remaining combined capacity of existing solid waste
transformation or disposal facilities existing at the time of the
preparation of the siting element, or revision thereto, in cubic
yards and years.
   (d) The identification of an area or areas for the location of new
solid waste transformation or disposal facilities, or the expansion
of existing facilities, that are consistent with the applicable city
or county general plan, if the county determines that existing

desired.
   (e) For countywide elements submitted or revised on or after

with any applicable city or county general plan, the siting element
shall include a specific strategy for the transformation or disposal
of solid waste in excess of remaining capacity.
