Document Description
Variance to the City of La Mesa from hazardous waste facility permit requirements. The variance authorizes the City of La Mesa to conduct residential collections of HHW coincidental to their annual cleanup campaign. The collections provide appropriate means for the elderly and handicapped, and others unable to participate in the regular HHW collection program of disposing of hazardous waste. The variance is based on the evidence that: 1.) The residential collections will meet strict standards and wastes are managed through the HHW collection program; 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 a consolidation yard for further management by the HHW collection program.
