SB 1383 regulations will be finalized in the coming months and will require jurisdictions to implement numerous organic waste disposal reduction programs and policies. The compliance deadline of January 1, 2022 is looming and the lift for jurisdictions and other entities to achieve compliance is big. Attend this session to learn about some CalRecycle tools and resources available to help your jurisdiction or entity prepare for compliance. CalRecycle will moderate this session and HF&H Consultants will provide a few highlights of SB 1383 regulatory requirements and then focus on sharing information on tools and resources available through CalRecycle to support jurisdictions.
Since 2002, Mr. Hilton, President of HF&H Consultants, has provided recycling and solid waste consulting services to public agencies covering strategic, operational, programmatic, contractual, and financial issues. Rob leads HF&H’s franchising team, supporting dozens communities annually in competitively procuring or negotiating collection, processing, or disposal contracts. Rob leads HF&H’s SB 1383 efforts, including direction of over 20 SB 1383 projects such as SB 1383 implementation plans, franchises, ordinances, and management of the CalRecycle Model SB 1383 Implementation Tools Project. He hosted several SB 1383 Local Government Summits and has spoken many times to jurisdictions on SB 1383 compliance.
While SB 1383 regulatory requirements are extensive, this presentation will briefly identify key SB 1383 milestones and requirements. In addition, it will include an introduction to four CalRecycle SB 1383 Implementation Tools and case study resources.
Tracy Swanborn is a Senior Manager with HF&H. She has 30 years of consulting experience assisting local governments. Her expertise is in planning diversion programs; managing competitive procurements for collection, processing, and disposal; and developing contracts and ordinances. Tracy has been focused on SB 1383, actively tracking the rule making, presenting SB 1383 requirements to jurisdictions, and assisting jurisdictions with preparation of SB 1383 action plans and SB 1383-compliant franchises. She managed the development of the four CalRecycle SB 1383 Model Tools, including a Model Franchise, Model Ordinance, Model Organics Product Procurement Policy, and Model Food Recovery Agreement.
To comply with SB 1383 regulations, jurisdictions and other entities will be drafting new agreements, ordinances, and policies or amending existing ones. This presentation will introduce you to four SB 1383 Implementation Tools that were produced for CalRecycle by HF&H Consultants, in conjunction with Diversion Strategies and Debra Kaufman Consulting. The SB 1383 tools, which will be available for use by jurisdictions and other entities, include: a model franchise agreement; a model mandatory organics disposal reduction ordinance; a model organic waste product procurement policy; and, a model edible food recovery agreement. Each tool provides example provisions for use to develop new agreements, ordinances, and/or policies, or to amend existing ones. The presentation will highlight key provisions of each tool and describe how users can navigate each model tool. The audience will gain an understanding of how the models can help entities achieve compliance and the various customizable provisions within the models that users can use to fit their needs.
Monaliza Noor is an Associate Analyst at HF&H Consultants. She recently assisted with the development of CalRecycle’s SB 1383 implementation tools and case studies. To help jurisdictions plan for SB 1383, Ms. Noor has also helped develop a number of SB 1383-specific tools that identify requirements; delineate which entity (City, hauler, or a third-party) will do what; and, allow for cost-benefit analysis. In addition to her SB 1383 focused work, Ms. Noor also assists in hauler performance reviews, solid waste and recycling contract analysis, and procurement evaluations. Before diving into the world of solid waste, Ms. Noor worked as a multimedia journalist for about a decade. Before joining HF&H Consultants in 2018, Ms. Noor worked for the City of Oakland’s environmental services division. In 2016, she earned a Master of Science degree in Environmental Management from the University of San Francisco.
Jurisdictions and other regulated entities have many pathways for compliance with the SB 1383 regulations and are encouraged to look to others for real world examples of compliance approaches. CalRecycle released eight case studies, prepared by HF&H Consultants, as resources for jurisdictions and entities to learn about various compliance approaches related to franchising, mandatory organics disposal reduction ordinances; organic waste product procurement; and, edible food recovery. The presentation will provide an overview of each case study including key implementation steps and milestones and lessons learned. The audience will hear about strategies taken in Alameda County, Manteca, San Francisco, San Ramon, Stockton, San Luis Obispo County, Fresno, and the country of France.
