Document Description
Variance to the Costa Mesa Sanitary District from hazardous waste facility requirements. The three-year variance authorizes the Costa Mesa Sanitary District to conduct door-to-door (residential) collections of HHW. The collections provide appropriate means for the elderly and handicapped, and others unable to participate in the regular HHW collections of disposing hazardous waste. The variance is based on the evidence that: 1.) The door-to-door collections will meet strict standards; 2.) Only personnel trained in hazardous waste management shall handle or package hazardous waste; and 3.) All collected wastes will be transported by a registered hazardous waste hauler to an authorized permit-by-rule HHW collection facility.
