SECTION 42000-42002



42000.  The Legislature hereby finds and declares all of the
following:
   (a) This division requires cities and counties to divert 25
percent of all solid waste from landfills and transformation
facilities by 1995 and 50 percent by 2000. As of 1990, the overall
diversion rate in the state was 12 percent.
   (b) California's source reduction, recycling, and composting
efforts need to increase greatly if local jurisdictions are to meet
the 25-percent and the 50-percent diversion requirements.
   (c) Market development is the key to increased, cost-effective
recycling. Market development includes activities that strengthen
demand by manufacturers and end-use consumers for recyclable
materials collected by municipalities, nonprofit organizations, and
private entities.
   (d) Developing markets for recyclable materials creates
opportunities that will reindustrialize California. The board
estimates that the development of markets for recyclable materials
may create over 20,000 jobs in California's manufacturing sector, an
additional 25,000 jobs in the sorting and processing fields, and an
unestimated number of jobs in other fields that may develop through
full implementation of this division.
   (e) The board is authorized to conduct individual market
development activities, but is not presently required to implement a
comprehensive plan that addresses the full range of market
development needs.


42001.  The Legislature further finds and declares that the health,
safety, and welfare of the people of California depend upon the
development, stability, and expansion of domestic markets for the
postconsumer wastes and secondary wastes collected within the state.
It is therefore the purpose of this chapter to stimulate the use of
postconsumer waste materials and secondary waste materials generated
in California as raw materials used as feedstock by private business,
industry, and commerce.



42002.  The following definitions govern the construction of this
chapter:
   (a) "Applicant" means a person, as defined in Section 40170, who
applies for designation as a Recycling Market Development Zone.
   (b) "Postconsumer waste material" means any product generated by a
business or a consumer which has served its intended end use, and
which has been separated from solid waste for the purposes of
collection, recycling, and disposal, and which does not include
secondary waste material.
   (c) "Recycling-based business" means any business that increases
market demand for, or adds value to, postconsumer waste material or
secondary waste material.
   (d) "Recycling market development zone" or "zone" means any single
or joint, contiguous parcels of property that, based on the
determination of the board, meets the following criteria:
   (1) The area has been zoned an appropriate land use for the
development of commercial, industrial, or manufacturing purposes.
   (2) The area is identified in the countywide or regional agency
integrated waste management plan as part of the market development
area.
   (3) The area is located in a city with an existing postconsumer
waste collection infrastructure.
   (4) The area may be used to establish commercial, manufacturing,
or industrial processes which would produce end products that consist
of not less than 50 percent recycled materials.
   (e) "Revolving loan program" means the Recycling Market
Development Revolving Loan Program established pursuant to Section
42023.1.
   (f) "Secondary waste material" means industrial byproducts which
would otherwise go to disposal facilities and wastes generated after
completion of a manufacturing process, but does not include
internally generated scrap commonly returned to industrial or
manufacturing processes, such as home scrap and mill broke.
   (g) "Subaccount" means the Recycling Market Development Revolving
Loan Subaccount created pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section
42023.1.
