We're playing hardball in Calif. An inspector will first look for loose or missing tops on your paint bench yet you can leave the "bung hole" as they call it open on the collection drum..
With the cost of materials keeping the lid on is easy...
There are so many programs and paperwork it's crazy.
First the fireman
then the water lady
then the air dude...
if you generate less than so many gallons in a 90 day period a shop can use the public drop off stations.
Step 1: Qualifying
The location in which the waste is generated must be in Santa Clara County.
The business must qualify as a Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator(CESQG) as defined in the California Health and Safety Code, section 25218.1 , and Code of Federal Regulations 40, Section 261.5 .
According to these codes, you must produce less than 220 lbs., or 27 gallons of hazardous waste per month, or less than 2.2 lbs. of Extremely Hazardous Waste per month.
Non-Profits, Landlords, Apartment Managers, Associaitions, and Businesses who have had hazardous waste dumped on their property are considered small businesses, and not are not exempt from disposal fees.
They got it set up so it pays to not be a succesfull business
But Arnold says he can fix that...
