Document Description
This project is the adoption of proposed regulations revising existing Compostable Material Handling Operations and Facilities Regulatory Requirements and adapting existing regulations to create a stand-alone, standardized regulatory framework for in-vessel digestion activities. The proposed project clarifies several feedstock definitions and the types of operations and facilities that can accept these materials; revises maximum metal concentrations allowed in compost; provides enforcement agencies with discretion to authorize temporary storage of additional material; revises inspection frequency language to ensure consistency throughout Title 14; provides operators and enforcement agencies with a mechanism to address chronic odor and identify sources of odor; establishes criteria for safe land application of compostable material; requires compost products to meet a physical contaminant limits; and clarifies small-scale composting requirements at sites, such as community gardens and schools.
