the following actions:
   (a) Make available one or more model ordinances that are suitable

requirements of this chapter.
   (b) While developing the model ordinance, consult with
representatives of the League of California Cities, the California
State Association of Counties, recyclers, private and public solid
waste services and appropriate personnel involved with the operation
and management of large venues and large events.
   (c) Post information on the board's Internet Web site on the solid

operators of large venues and large events to decrease solid waste
and increase diversion of recyclable materials.
   (d) Post information on the board's Internet Web site for local
agencies, with examples of solid waste reduction, reuse, and
recycling programs, including, but not limited to, those operated by
community conservation corps.



42648.2.  (a) (1) On and after July 1, 2005, when issuing a permit
to an operator of a large venue or large event, the local agency
shall provide information to the operator on programs that can be
implemented to reduce, reuse, and recycle solid waste materials
generated at the venue or event, and provide contact information
about where solid waste materials may be donated, recycled, or
composted. This information may include, but is not limited to,
providing information directing the operator of the large venue or
large event to the board's Web site or any other appropriate Web site
included by the local agency, direct mailings, brochures, or other
relevant literature.
   (2) On or before August 1, 2006, and annually thereafter until
August 1, 2008, each local agency shall provide the board with an
estimate and description of the top 10 percent of large venues and
large events within its jurisdiction, based upon amount of solid
waste generated, as submitted by operators of large venues and large
events pursuant to Section 42648.3. To the extent that the
information is readily available to the local agency, the information
shall include the name, location, and a brief description of the
venue or event, a brief description of the types of wastes generated,
types, and estimated amount of materials disposed and diverted, by
weight, and existing solid waste reduction, reuse, and recycling
programs that the operator of the large venue or large event utilizes
to reduce, reuse, and recycle the solid waste. This information
shall be reported to the board as a part of the local agency's annual
report submitted pursuant to Section 41821.
   (b) On or before December 1, 2008, the board shall evaluate the
solid waste reduction, reuse, and recycling rates and implementation
of waste reduction, reuse, and recycling plans in the top 10 percent
of large venues and large events as reported by each local agency
pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (a). If the board, upon
reviewing the information reported to the board by local agencies
pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (a), determines that less
than 75 percent of the solid waste reduction, reuse, and recycling
plans for the large venues and large events have been prepared or
implemented to meet their waste reduction, reuse, and recycling rates
developed pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 42648.4, according
to the schedule determined pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section
42468.4, the board shall recommend to the Legislature those statutory
changes needed to require operators of large venues and large events
to implement waste reduction, reuse, and recycling plans.




42648.3.  On or before July 1, 2005, and on or before July 1
annually thereafter, each operator of a large venue or large event
shall submit to the local agency, upon request by the local agency,
written documentation of waste reduction, reuse, recycling, and
diversion programs, if any, implemented at the large venue or large
event, and the type and weight of materials diverted and disposed at
that large venue or large event. If the operator of a large venue or
large event cannot implement a program as provided in the solid waste
reduction, reuse, and recycling plan, the operator shall include a
brief explanation for the delay as part of its report to the local
agency. The operator of the large venue or large event shall submit
the requested information to the local agency, no later than one
month from the date the operator receives the request.



42648.4.  On or before July 1, 2005, and on or before July 1,
biennially thereafter, the operator of a large venue or large event
shall meet with recyclers and with the solid waste enterprise that
provides solid waste handling services to the large venue or large
event, whether by an exclusive franchise with the local agency, or by
a permit, contract, or nonexclusive franchise, to determine the
solid waste reduction, reuse, and recycling programs that are
appropriate for the large venue or large event. In determining
feasible solid waste reduction, reuse, and recycling programs, the
operator may do any of the following:
   (a) Develop solid waste reduction, reuse, and recycling rates and
a solid waste reduction, reuse, and recycling plan that would achieve
those solid waste reduction, reuse, and recycling rates.
   (b) Determine a timeline for implementation of the solid waste
reduction, reuse, and recycling plan and solid waste reduction,
reuse, and recycling rates.



42648.5.  The board shall provide technical assistance and tools to
implement this chapter, to the extent feasible under existing
financial resources. This technical assistance may include, but is
not limited to, model documents, training, research on solid waste
management best practices, cost reduction, and innovative products to
assist local agencies and operators of large venues and large events
to develop and implement effective solid waste reduction, reuse, and
recycling plans and rates.



42648.6.  If a large venue or large event has contiguous parcels
located in both the City of Los Angeles and the County of Los
Angeles, the requirements of this chapter shall apply only to the
local agency containing the majority of the property for that large
venue or large event.

operator of a large venue or large event in order to recover the
local agency's estimated costs incurred in complying with this
chapter.
