SECTION 42920-42927



42920.  (a) On or before February 15, 2000, the board shall adopt a
state agency model integrated waste management plan for source
reduction, recycling, and composting activities.
   (b) (1) On or before July 1, 2000, each state agency shall develop
and adopt, in consultation with the board, an integrated waste
management plan, in accordance with the requirements of this chapter.
The plan shall build upon existing programs and measures, including
the state agency model integrated waste management plan adopted by
the board pursuant to subdivision (a), that will reduce solid waste,
reuse materials whenever possible, recycle recyclable materials, and
procure products with recycled content in all state agency offices
and facilities, including any leased locations. It is the intent of
the Legislature that the local jurisdiction and the state agency or
large state facility located within that jurisdiction work together
to implement the state agency integrated waste management plan.
   (2) Each state agency shall submit an adopted integrated waste
management plan to the board for review and approval on or before
July 15, 2000. The board shall adopt procedures for reviewing and
approving those integrated waste management plans. The board shall
complete its plan review process on or before January 1, 2001.
   (3) If a state agency has not submitted an adopted integrated
waste management plan or the model integrated waste management plan
with revisions to the board by January 1, 2001, or if the board has
disapproved the plan that was submitted, then the model integrated
waste management plan, as revised by the board in consultation with
the agency, shall take effect on that date, or on a later date as
determined by the board, and shall have the same force and effect as
if adopted by the state agency.
   (c) Notwithstanding subdivision (e) of Section 12217 of the Public
Contract Code, at least one solid waste reduction and recycling
coordinator shall be designated by each state agency. The coordinator
shall perform the duties imposed pursuant to this chapter using
existing resources. The coordinator shall be responsible for
implementing the integrated waste management plan and shall serve as
a liaison to other state agencies and coordinators.
   (d) The board shall provide technical assistance to state agencies
for the purpose of implementing the integrated waste management
plan.



42921.  (a) Each state agency and each large state facility shall
divert at least 25 percent of all solid waste generated by the state
agency by January 1, 2002, through source reduction, recycling, and
composting activities.
   (b) On and after January 1, 2004, each state agency and each large
state facility shall divert at least 50 percent of all solid waste
through source reduction, recycling, and composting activities.



42921.5.  (a) After January 1, 2009, the board shall determine each
state agency's or a large state facility's compliance with Section
42921, for each year, commencing with January 1, 2007, by comparing
the per capita disposal rate in subsequent years with the equivalent
per capita disposal rate that would have been necessary for the state
agency or large state facility to comply with Section 42921 on
January 1, 2007, as calculated pursuant to subdivision (d).
   (b) In making a determination whether a state agency or large
state facility is in compliance with the requirements of Section
42921, the board may consider an agency's or facility's per capita
disposal rate as a factor in determining whether the state agency or
large state facility is adequately implementing its integrated waste
management plan. The board shall not consider a state, agency, or
large state facility's per capita disposal rate to be determinative
when considering whether the agency or facility is implementing its
integrated waste management plan.
   (c) When determining whether an agency or facility is in
compliance with Section 42921, the board shall consider that an
increase in the per capita disposal rate is a result of disposal
amounts increasing faster than the growth of the state agency or
large state facility. The board shall use an increase in the per
capita disposal rate that is in excess of the equivalent per capita
disposal rate as a factor in determining whether the board is
required to more closely examine the agency's or facility's plan
implementation efforts. If indicated by this examination, the board
may require a state agency or large state facility to expand existing
programs or implement new programs.
   (d) (1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), "per capita disposal"
or "per capita disposal rate" means the total annual disposal by a
state agency or large state facility, in pounds, divided by total
number of employees in that state agency or large state facility, and
divided by 365 days.
   (2) The board may alternatively define per capita disposal or per
capita disposal rate for a state agency or large state facility that
has a significant amount of disposal from nonemployees or for other
reasons that would make calculation of per capita disposal by the
number of employees inaccurate.



42924.  (a) On or before February 15, 2000, the board shall develop
and adopt requirements relating to adequate areas for collecting,
storing, and loading recyclable materials in state buildings. In
developing the requirements, the board may rely on the model
ordinance adopted pursuant to Chapter 18 (commencing with Section
42900).
   (b) Each state agency or large state facility, when entering into
a new lease, or renewing an existing lease, shall ensure that
adequate areas are provided for, and adequate personnel are available
to oversee, the collection, storage, and loading of recyclable
materials in compliance with the requirements established pursuant to
subdivision (a).
   (c) In the design and construction of state agency offices and
facilities, the Department of General Services shall allocate
adequate space for the collection, storage, and loading of recyclable
materials in compliance with the requirements established pursuant
to subdivision (a).



42925.  (a) Any cost savings realized as a result of the state
agency integrated waste management plan shall, to the extent
feasible, be redirected to the agency's integrated waste management
plan to fund plan implementation and administration costs, in
accordance with Sections 12167 and 12167.1 of the Public Contract
Code.
   (b) The board shall establish and implement a waste reduction
award program for state agencies and large state facilities that
develop, adopt, and implement innovative and effective integrated
waste management plans in compliance with this chapter.



42926.  (a) In addition to the information provided to the board
pursuant to Section 12167.1 of the Public Contract Code, each state
agency shall submit an annual report to the board summarizing its
progress in reducing solid waste as required by Section 42921. The
annual report shall be due on or before September 1, 2009, and on or
before September 1 in each subsequent year. The information in this
report shall encompass the previous calendar year.
   (b) Each state agency's annual report to the board shall, at a
minimum, include all of the following:
   (1) Calculations of annual disposal reduction.
   (2) Information on the changes in waste generated or disposed of
due to increases or decreases in employees, economics, or other
factors.
   (3) A summary of progress made in implementing the integrated
waste management plan.
   (4) The extent to which the state agency intends to utilize
programs or facilities established by the local agency for the
handling, diversion, and disposal of solid waste. If the state agency
does not intend to utilize those established programs or facilities,
the state agency shall identify sufficient disposal capacity for
solid waste that is not source reduced, recycled, or composted.
   (5) Other information relevant to compliance with Section 42921.
   (c) The board shall use, but is not limited to the use of, the
annual report in the determination of whether the agency's integrated
waste management plan needs to be revised.



42927.  (a)  A community college district shall give first priority
for the expenditure of the revenues derived from the sale of
recyclable materials resulting from the implementation of the
district's integrated waste management plan for the purposes of
offsetting the recycling program costs imposed pursuant to this
chapter.
   (b) A community college district shall expend all cost savings
that result from implementation of the district's integrated waste
management plan pursuant to this chapter to fund the continued
implementation of the plan consistent with the requirement that
revenues from the sale of recyclable materials be used to offset
recycling program costs, as specified in Sections 12167 and 12167.1
of the Public Contract Code.
   (c) A community college district shall provide information on the
quantities of recyclable materials collected for recycling annually
to the board, according to a schedule determined by the board and the
district.
