conclusion
Conclusion
  • To date, Mr. Filbin has not provided CIWMB staff with a compliance schedule or records providing proof that the activities at the site are not subject to the requirements of 14 CCR Article 5.9 as previously requested. An EA Notification or permit application has not be received.
  • The Type A inert debris storage and handling activities conducted on this site do not meet the requirements of 14 CCR 17381.1 and the site does not qualify as a recycling center since the storage time limits are not being met.
  • Surveillance of the site on December 12, 13, 14, 20, and 21, 2005, inspection on January 25, 2006, and surveillance on February 21, 22, and 23, 2006, by Jeff Hackett and Susan Markie, is evidence that Mr. Filbin continues to accept Type A inert debris in violation of Notice and Order No. EA-2005-05.
  • The Type A inert debris is considered to be unlawfully disposed and subject to enforcement action. Notice and Order No. EA-2005-05 was issued and is warranted to ensure that Type A inert debris is received, handled, stored, transferred, processed, and/or disposed in accordance with applicable requirements.
