   (2) On and after July 1, 2012, the amount of the fee established
by the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery pursuant to
paragraph (1) shall be increased by twelve cents ($0.12) per ton for
each operator of a solid waste landfill whose owner has notified the
department that it elects to participate in the State Solid Waste
Postclosure and Corrective Action Trust Fund pursuant to Article 2.1
(commencing with Section 48010).
   (c) The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery shall
notify the state board on the first day of the period in which the
rate shall take effect of any rate change adopted pursuant to
paragraphs (1) and (2) of subdivision (b).
   (d) The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery and the
state board shall ensure that all of the fees for solid waste imposed
pursuant to this section that are collected at a transfer station
are paid to the state board in accordance with this article.
   (e) (1) The fee imposed by paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) shall
not be operative on or after July 1, 2012, unless the Department of
Resources Recycling and Recovery receives, on or before January 1,
2012, letters of participation in the State Solid Waste Postclosure
and Corrective Action Trust Fund from landfill owners representing at
least 50 percent of the total volume of waste disposed of in 2010.
   (2) The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery shall
notify the state board, on or before February 29, 2012, if the fee
imposed by paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) shall become operative

48001.  The revenue from the fees paid pursuant to paragraph (1) of
subdivision (b) of Section 48000 shall, after payment of refunds and
administrative costs of collection, be deposited in the Integrated
Waste Management Account, which is hereby created in the fund.



48001.5.  (a) The revenue from the fees paid pursuant to paragraph

   (b) It is the intent of the Legislature that an amount that is
sufficient to fund state water board and regional water board
regulatory activities for solid waste landfills be appropriated from

established pursuant to Section 48000 does not generate revenues
sufficient to fund the programs specified in this section, or if the
amount appropriated by the Legislature for these purposes is reduced,
those reductions shall be equally and proportionally distributed
between funding for the solid waste programs of the state water board
and the regional water boards and the Department of Resources
Recycling and Recovery.

waste landfill that receives less than a monthly average of five tons
per operating day of solid waste.



48007.  (a) Recycled materials and inert waste removed from the
waste stream and not disposed of in a solid waste landfill shall not
be included for the purpose of assessing fees imposed pursuant to
Section 48000.

the regulations adopted by the board pursuant to Section 48007.5.

and file with the Secretary of State, pursuant to Section 11346.2 of
the Government Code, regulations that establish an appropriate level
of oversight of the management of construction and demolition waste,
and the management of inert waste at mine reclamation sites.
   (b) For purposes of this section, "inert waste" has the same
meaning as defined in subdivision (c) of Section 48007, as that
section read on January 1, 2002.



48008.  (a) Any operator of a solid waste landfill that pays a fee
pursuant to this chapter may impose on its users an administrative
fee of not more than 5 percent of the fees paid to the State Board of
Equalization during the previous quarter pursuant to Section 48000.
