HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE AGREEMENT WITH THE SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT
Authorize execution of an Agreement with the San Bernardino County Fire Protection District for Household Hazardous Waste Management for the period of July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2022.
The California Public Resources Code requires cities and counties to prepare a Household Hazardous Waste Element which identifies a program for the safe collection, recycling, treatment, and disposal of hazardous wastes generated by households in the city or county, and which should be separated from the waste stream. Included in the Household Hazardous Waste Element is the City’s continued participation in the San Bernardino County Household Hazardous Waste Program.
In order to maintain compliance with the Public Resources Code, the City contracts with San Bernardino County to provide a household hazardous waste collection program. The services provided through this contract include a regional network of collection centers including nine permanent collection centers accessible year-round to all residents residing within Chino Hills and an annual report to the City which includes the amounts and types of household hazardous waste collected throughout the year. In 2016, 1,517 Chino Hills residents visited six county collection centers and disposed of more than 98,000 pounds of hazardous waste materials. Examples of the materials collected include paint, flammable liquids, antifreeze, batteries, motor oil and filters, and electronic waste.
The 2017/18 Fiscal Year budget allocates $105,742 for the Household Hazardous Waste Management program. Staff anticipates the program costs to increase approximately 3% each year over the term of the agreement.
