The County of San Diego Department of Environmental Health Solid Waste Local Enforcement Agency (LEA) is certified by the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery to enforce state solid waste laws and regulations in San Diego County, excluding the City of San Diego.  The LEA has the primary responsibility for ensuring the proper operation, permitting and closure of solid waste facilities, operations and disposal sites. The LEA also has responsibilities for ensuring the review and approval of post-closure land use activities at closed solid waste disposal sites.  The LEA works to protect public health, safety and the well being of our communities and environment from the impacts of solid waste management/recycling and disposal by:

  • Preventing environmental damage from existing and future solid waste facilities and operations through careful and thorough permit management, inspection, enforcement, complaint response and education.
  • Maintaining all active Solid Waste Facility Permits within our jurisdiction with up to date information and consistent with current laws and regulations.
  • Completing all required inspections at each active and closed facility and taking appropriate enforcement actions as necessary.
  • Ensuring quick response to complaints received regarding facilities, operations or disposal sites within the jurisdiction of the LEA and taking appropriate enforcement actions as necessary.
  • Maintaining LEA certification in good standing with the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle formerly the California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB)).
  • Promoting interagency cooperation with all entities involved in solid waste management and disposal in San Diego County.
  • Maintaining communication with CalRecycle as well as other local enforcement and regulatory agencies.
Information on solid waste facilities, operations and disposal sites regulated by the LEA, including their current permit status, certain related documents and inspection results can all be reviewed on the CalRecycle Solid Waste Information System (SWIS) website.

Public Notice for an application for a Medium Volume Construction and  Demolition/Inert Debris Processing Facility

This project is an existing Medium Volume Construction and Demolition/Inert Debris Processing Facility. The operator’s proposed updates to the Facility Plan require the operator to submit a new Solid Waste Facility Registration Permit application package for LEA review and processing. A Registration Permit cannot be modified or revised, so a new Registration Permit is necessary.

The changes to the Facility Plan include the name of the landowner, equipment addition, and approval of the fire control plan by the San Marcos Fire Department. The operational area, tonnages, hours of operation, and traffic will remain the same. The types of materials permitted under this new application do not differ from those already handled at this facility.
