WHEREAS, the Refuse Collection and Disposal Initiative Ordinance of 1932, as amended (Initiative Ordinance), requires persons collecting refuse in the City and County of San Francisco to be permitted; and,
WHEREAS, federal facilities must comply with the requirements of the Initiative Ordinance pursuant to Section 6001 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, as amended (RCRA); and,
WHEREAS, in 1992, the Health Commission adopted the Federal Facilities Refuse Collection Permit Regulation governing the issuance of refuse collection permits for federal facilities within the exterior boundaries of the City and County of San Francisco; and,
WHEREAS, this Commission is concurrently considering the adoption of a regulation governing the issuance of refuse collection permit for non-federal facilities at Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island, which is different from the existing Federal Facility Refuse Collection Permit Regulation; and,
WHEREAS, Section 6001 of RCRA requires local government to regulate federal facilities in the same manner as non-federal facilities; and,
WHEREAS, the Health Commission desires to harmonize the Federal Facilities Refuse Collection Permit Regulation with the Regulation for the Issuance of Refuse Collection Permit for Non-Federal Facilities at Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, that the Health Commission hereby amends the Regulation for Issuance of Refuse Collection Permits for Federal Facilities.
I hereby certify that the foregoing resolution was adopted by the San Francisco Health Commission at its meeting of Tuesday, May 4, 1999.
