AB 1776, as introduced, Obernolte. Hazardous waste: disposal: exemption.
Existing law prohibits the management of hazardous waste except in accordance with the hazardous waste control laws and prohibits the disposal of hazardous waste except at a disposal site or at a facility of an owner or operator who holds a valid hazardous waste facilities permit or other grant of authorization from the Department of Toxic Substances Control to use and operate the site or facility. Existing law defines the term “disposal” for purposes of the hazardous waste control laws as including the discharge, deposit, injection, dumping, spilling, leaking, or placing of a waste into or on any land.
This bill would exclude, from the definition of the term “disposal” under those laws, the onsite movement of soil at an active outdoor sport shooting range, as defined, if this movement is done to facilitate the removal and recycling of spent ammunition materials existing on the site as a result of the normal use of the shooting range and the residual soil is replaced within the area from which it was originally removed.
