16:39
Spill response training video: Follow this 7-step approach to help workers prepare for spill clean up in your facility. This 16-minute Spill Drill video can be used as part of a spill response training program and annual training for hazmat spill responders. The video covers the most effective methods for spill control in industrial environments, and details seven steps to practice during a Spill Drill. In order to prepare for a spill, practice is essential. Go through training drills to help protect yourself, your employees, and the environment. Be aware of the potential for spills in your plant or factory. Protect yourself when a spill occurs, stop the source of a leak, and have the right equipment to have on hand when a spill occurs. After a spill site has been cleaned up, people and equipment need to be decontaminated and proper reports filed. This video was produced and distributed by New Pig Corporation, the world leader in leak and spill response. Learn more about our new upcoming online training course: http://bit.ly/newpigtraining

LDC driving lesson 11 - Hazard Perception & Defensive Driving - key learning points
 
11:03
Part of the revolutionary LD System of learning to drive from LDC. This video shows the key points you need to learn in preparation for the driving lesson on Hazard Perception & Defensive Driving. If you want to see this approach in practice view the videos in the playlists entitled "Student centred learning" where Bob Morton supports Bobby-Jo as she learns to drive. Too many driving instructors focus too much attention on telling their pupils what to do and what to think! This approach only fosters dependency, doubt and blind obedience, such that once the test is passed they do all the things they were told not to do. The LDC approach is designed to foster self-reliance, confidence and responsibility resulting in safer drivers who learn to drive far more quickly and thoroughly. Unlike traditional instruction LDC heavily promotes student centred learning. This involves the student being encouraged to take more responsibility for their own development by using the LD System materials before and after each lesson and by using discovery learning with self determination and reflection rather than being told what to do by the instructor. In particular talk through instruction, prompted practice and long winded explanations are avoided, if at all possible - instead encouraging the student to work it out for themselves.

This LA Musician Built $1,200 Tiny Houses for the Homeless. Then the City Seized Them.
 
14:04
Elvis Summers crowdfunded $100,000 to build dozens of tiny homes. City officials looking to pass a $2 billion housing plan tried to shut him down.

Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. ---------------- Each night, tens of thousands of people sleep in tent cities crowding the palm-lined boulevards of Los Angeles, far more than any other city in the nation. The homeless population in the entertainment capital of the world has hit new record highs in each of the past few years. But a 39-year-old struggling musician from South LA thought he had a creative fix. Elvis Summers, who went through stretches of homelessness himself in his 20s, raised over $100,000 through crowdfunding campaigns last spring. With the help of professional contractors and others in the community who sign up to volunteer through his nonprofit, Starting Human, he has built dozens of solar-powered, tiny houses to shelter the homeless since. Summers says that the houses are meant to be a temporary solution that, unlike a tent, provides the secure foundation residents need to improve their lives. "The tiny houses provide immediate shelter," he explains. "People can lock their stuff up and know that when they come back from their drug treatment program or court or finding a job all day, their stuff is where they left it." Each house features a solar power system, a steel-reinforced door, a camping toilet, a smoke detector, and even window alarms. The tiny structures cost Summers roughly $1,200 apiece to build. LA city officials, however, had a different plan to address the crisis. A decade after the city's first 10-year plan to end homelessness withered in 2006, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced in February a $1.87 billion proposal to get all LA residents off the streets, once and for all. He and the City Council aim to build 10,000 units of permanent housing with supportive services over the next decade. In the interim, they are shifting funds away from temporary and emergency shelters. Councilmember Curren Price, who represents the district where Summers's tiny houses were located, does not believe they are beneficial either to the community or to the homeless people housed in them. "I don't really want to call them houses. They're really just boxes," says Price. "They're not safe, and they impose real hazards for neighbors in the community." Most of Summers's tiny houses are on private land that has been donated to the project. A handful had replaced the tents that have proliferated on freeway overpasses in the city. Summers put them there until he could secure a private lot to create a tiny house village similar to those that already exist in Portland, Seattle, Austin, and elsewhere. "My whole issue and cause is that something needs to be done right now," Summers emphasizes. But the houses, nestled among dour tent shantytowns, became brightly colored targets early this year for frustrated residents who want the homeless out of their backyards. Councilmember Price was bombarded by complaints from angry constituents. In February, the City Council responded by amending a sweeps ordinance to allow the tiny houses to be seized without prior notice. On the morning of the ninth, just as the mayor and council gathered at City Hall to announce their new plan to end homelessness, police and garbage trucks descended on the tiny homes, towing three of them to a Bureau of Sanitation lot for disposal. Summers managed to move eight of the threatened houses into storage before they were confiscated, but their residents were left back on the sidewalk. If the city won't devote any resources to supporting novel solutions, Summers urges officials at least to make it easier for private organizations and individuals like him to pave the way forward. The city owns thousands of vacant lots, many of which have been abandoned for decades, that could provide sites for tiny house villages or other innovative housing concepts that can have an immediate impact. "Everything that they have been doing doesn't work. It's just years of circles and bureaucratic holds and wait times," says Summers. "10, 20, 30, 40 years—where's all the housing?"

Hazardous Materials Management Program / Collier County Recycles 2016
 
03:34
Collier County Recycles 2016 / Hazardous Materials Management Program: The Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Department’s (SHWMD) mission is to provide an efficient, safe and convenient programs for the collection and proper disposal of household materials for residents and small businesses in Collier County. Households often use and store many chemical products that are hazardous. Products such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides contain potentially hazardous ingredients requiring special care when being disposed of. Improper disposal of these chemical products include pouring them down a drain, on the ground, into storm sewers or, in some cases, putting them out with the trash. The dangers of such disposal methods might not be immediately obvious, but improper disposal of these wastes can pollute the environment and pose a serious threat to human health. All SHWMD Recycling Drop-off Centers collect used oil, antifreeze, gasoline, diesel fuel, used oil filters, electronics, fluorescent bulbs and latex paint. These items are removed from our facilities by certified hazardous waste management vendors for final disposal, promoting a safe and healthy environment for our residents. Enhanced Small Quantity Generator Inspection Program To protect public health, safety, and the environment from the improper management of hazardous waste, SHWMD staff perform regular Compliance Assistance Verification (CAV) inspections of businesses that have the potential to generate, store, transport, or dispose of hazardous waste in Collier County. Each year more than 1/5 of the more than 5,000 businesses receive CAV inspections. Through this program, generators of hazardous waste are educated as to their legal responsibilities regarding managing/disposing of hazardous waste. During on-site inspections staff request and examine documentation that identifies the types of waste generated and how the waste is disposed of. Documentation may consist of hazardous waste manifests, shipping documents, and/or a bill of lading. In most cases, CAV inspections are unannounced. In addition to documenting any compliance issues, staff makes suggestions regarding waste reduction, recycling, and other best management practices for hazardous waste management and disposal. This program is a means of complying with Collier County's Water Pollution Control Program Ordinance 89-20; Florida Statues 403.7225, 403.7234, 403.7236, and 403.7238; Collier County's NPDES Permit Requirements; Growth Management Plan CCME Elements; and, the Collier County Land Development Code Section 3.06, Ground Water Protection. Pollutant Storage Tank Compliance Verification Program The Pollutant Storage Tank Compliance Verification Program strives to provide businesses with detailed information concerning the equipment and environmental status at pollutant storage tank facilities located in Collier County. SHWMD staff will provide thorough follow-up of inquiries and experienced feedback, in a professional relationship with our business tank facility owners, concerned citizens, contractors, engineers, environmental consultants, real estate agents, attorneys and other government agencies. Interdepartmental Tanks Program SHWMD works closely with Collier County's Risk Management and other departments that manage storage tanks to ensure that all county-owned storage tanks are properly managed, registered as required, and are adequately insured. Currently there are nearly 300 county-owned tanks. The team also works closely with county representatives in the preparation and implementation of Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure plans to comply with EPA rules, as well as providing the required annual training to facility operators. Spill Response Instructions have also been individually created for each county-owned facility with storage tanks. The plans are designed to enhance the county’s capability to respond to, and efficiently clean up, any pollutant spills in a quick and effective manner. For more information please call 239.252.2508

LDC driving lesson 12 - Dual Carriageways - key learning points
 
15:27
Part of the revolutionary LD System of learning to drive from LDC. This video shows the key points you need to learn in preparation for the driving lesson on Dual Carriageways. If you want to see this approach in practice view the videos in the playlists entitled "Student centred learning" where Bob Morton supports Bobby-Jo as she learns to drive. Too many driving instructors focus too much attention on telling their pupils what to do and what to think! This approach only fosters dependency, doubt and blind obedience, such that once the test is passed they do all the things they were told not to do. The LDC approach is designed to foster self-reliance, confidence and responsibility resulting in safer drivers who learn to drive far more quickly and thoroughly. Unlike traditional instruction LDC heavily promotes student centred learning. This involves the student being encouraged to take more responsibility for their own development by using the LD System materials before and after each lesson and by using discovery learning with self determination and reflection rather than being told what to do by the instructor. In particular talk through instruction, prompted practice and long winded explanations are avoided, if at all possible - instead encouraging the student to work it out for themselves.

R.B. Sloan, Jr -- Speech Against Hazardous Waste Incinerator -- May 31, 1990
 
08:59
In 1990, the State of North Carolina identified several potential sites for construction of a hazardous waste incinerator. A final candidate site, dubbed SA-9, straddled the border of Iredell and Rowan Counties. The State threatened the use of eminent domain to seize the necessary property. This, combined with a healthy fear of the potential negative environmental and economic impacts on the two agricultural Counties, resulted in a spirited grassroots resistance and pitted local authorities against the State. In response, the State set out to curb fears and convince the locals to accept the planned project through a series of Public Forums where the State's Hazardous Waste Commission was to listen and respond to questions and concerns from the citizens. R.B. Sloan, Jr, Chairman of the Iredell County Board of Commissioners at the time, gave this speech against the incinerator to close out the Public Forum in Statesville, NC on May 31, 1990. Ultimately the resistance succeeded in repelling the attempted land grab by the State, and plans for building the incinerator were shelved.

Environmental Justice Bills
 
02:41
In response to illegal grading on the Waianae Coast, Councilmember Kymberly Marcos Pine introduced legislation to restore environmental justice throughout Oahu's communities. Bills 35, 36, and 37 were drafted with input from Leeward Coast community leaders and public policy advocates, and developed in response to the rampant and illegal stockpiling and grading occurring throughout Leeward communities. Councilmember Pine's proposed bills will bring stiff penalties, including 500% increases in civil fines and up to $10,000 a day while for repeat offenders and criminal prosecutions for the most egregious cases of careless illegal stockpiling and grading. The proposed rule changes will also tighten up the application process for obtaining stockpiling and grading permits, provide the City departments with more enforcement options, and prevent the stockpiling of hazardous or non-natural materials on agriculturally-zoned land. Reference: Bill 35 -- Relating to stockpiling Prohibiting certain materials from being stockpiled on agriculturally-zoned lands Bill 36 -- Relating to grading Increasing fines by 1000% and instituting stricter penalties for illegal dumping violations Bill 35 -- Relating to grading Providing the Director of the Department of Planning and Permitting with authority to withhold grading permits for parties violating dumping laws Connect with Kymberly Pine: http://www.councilmemberpine.com/ https://www.facebook.com/Kymberly.Marcos.Pine https://twitter.com/KymberlyPine Kymberly Marcos Pine is a Honolulu City Councilmember representing District 1.

☢ Update #3 ☢ Nevada Radioactive Waste Facility Fire Close to Las Vegas - October 2015
 
01:51
New Plume Graph Data from October 18, 2015 Nevada Nuclear Waste Dump Fire Nevada Radioactive Waste Facility Fire (October 2015) It could be some time before officials know what caused a fire at a low-level radioactive waste dump in Nye County that shut down a 140-mile stretch of Nevada's main north-south highway for almost 24 hours. U.S. Highway 95 reopened to traffic Monday evening after tests conducted from the air and on the ground showed no signs of radioactive contamination from the blaze that broke out Sunday afternoon at the US Ecology waste site about 110 miles northwest of Las Vegas. In a conference call Monday night, State Fire Marshal Chief Peter Mulvihill said investigators would be taking a close and methodical look at the site "once it is safe to go down there." He said it's still too early to know what might have sparked the fire, which was reported about 1 p.m. Sunday in one of the site's low-level radioactive waste disposal trenches and was allowed to burn itself out over the course of about 12 hours. Concerns about possible contamination from the fire prompted authorities to cancel school in the nearest town of Beatty and close U.S. 95 from state Route 160, about 70 miles northwest of Las Vegas, to the Nye County seat of Tonopah, 210 miles northwest of Las Vegas, about 7 p.m. Sunday. US Ecology officials said they created "an exclusion zone around the facility" at the request of state regulators, but storms in the area Sunday night delayed efforts to survey the site from the air. Federal aircraft that can detect radioactive particles conducted flights Monday morning, followed by a detection team on the ground that started in Beatty, 10 miles to the north, and worked its way to the waste facility. Once it was determined that the fire was out and the surrounding area was safe from radioactive contamination, the highway was reopened about 5:30 p.m. Monday, releasing a flood of vehicles that had been trapped overnight in Beatty. Mike Harmon, chief of the local volunteer fire department, said all of the motel rooms in town were filled with stranded travelers, and a line of vehicles a half-mile long was waiting at the road block for the highway to reopen. He guessed there were 30 to 40 tractor-trailers parked along the road and packed into various parking lots in the town of about 1,000 people. "It's pretty full," Harmon said. Before the fire, flooding on roads throughout the area had already prompted the Nye County School District to cancel classes Monday in Amargosa Valley, about 20 miles south of US Ecology. The two public schools in Beatty were closed Monday as a precautionary response to the fire, said Cameron McRae, the district's director of transportation, maintenance and operations. All Nye County schools were expected to open Tuesday. The US Ecology site has served as a dump for low-level radioactive waste and other hazardous materials since the early 1960s. From 1983 to 1992, solid low-level radioactive waste primarily from hospitals and university research labs was buried there in dirt-covered trenches. It came from Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico, the states that make up the Rocky Mountain Low-Level Radioactive Waste Board compact, according to Leonard Slosky, the board's executive director. US Ecology stopped accepting radioactive waste in 1992, but it still takes in about 100,000 tons of hazardous waste per year from out-of-state and in-state sources. A fire in one of the disposal trenches or in a facility near them would be "very unusual" because there are supposed to be no ignition sources in or around the waste, Slosky said. Mulvihill said the fire burned a 40-to-50-foot area of the 40-acre site on state-owned land. As part of their investigation, state officials said they will be looking at the overall stability of the more than 50-year-old dump. The fire prompted a coordinated emergency response from Nye County and from Nevada's Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Public Safety, Highway Patrol, State Fire Marshal, National Guard, Department of Transportation, and Division of Environment Protection. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency also sent an on-scene coordinator to the site. In 2010, the EPA fined US Ecology nearly $500,000 for 18 hazardous waste violations. Reports on the violations said that on at least two occasions operators observed smoke coming from a soils decontamination heating unit that resulted in the release of hazardous compounds into the air. Inspectors also noted "six spills, leaks or other uncontrolled PCB discharges" between 2006 and 2008 that weren't reported as required by law, according to an EPA news release in 2010. PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, are toxic, organic pollutants that persist in the environment. They were once widely used in electrical transformers and capacitors but are no longer produced in the United States. By Henry Brean and Keith Rogers Las Vegas Review-Journal
Emergency Tower to Improve Communication
 
02:06
03.08.12 (LAS CRUCES) -- Law enforcement officers in Dona Ana County are on there way to solving a big communication gap located in the southernmost part of the county, near the United States and Mexican border. For decades, few deputies with the Dona Ana County Sheriff's Department have been able to establish reliable radio communication from the Texas state line to the Luna County line. "We have radio communication in that area, but it's just very spotty" said Kelly Jameson. But a new tower being built hopes to change all that. "It will fill in the gaps of frequencies out there so, that the deputies can establish radio communication and they'll know its dependable and in an event of an emergency we can get more units to the area," she said. The tower site is on a narrow, 200 foot section of property owned by the Bureau of Land Management. Its located just north of the United States, Mexico border, off Highway 9. "Communication is critical to these deputies if you can't establish communication with central dispatch. If they can't receive a radio communication message via cellular phone they are hanging in the middle of nowhere," she said. The gap in radio communication came more than ten years ago, after the FCC mandated a switch from high frequency to very high frequency radio transmissions. "Its been a lot of red tape," she said. Larry Bleimeyer, a county radio communications supervisor, pushed for the new tower. He helped get the land cleared through environmental impact studies. He also worked to have a right-of-way established for an access road to the tower site. The Bleimeyer Communication Tower is expected to be up and running later this summer. Reported by Carlos Correa

Brownfields on Wenatchee's Waterfront
 
05:12
Redeveloping brownfield sites is not easy work. Dedicated staff in the Toxics Cleanup Program at the Washington State Department of Ecology provide support to communities throughout the process and connect communities to critical resources needed to achieve their goals. All across the state, Integrated Planning Grants from the Department of Ecology can help prime brownfield sites for redevelopment. The beautiful Wenatchee waterfront is just one example of a community that benefited from an Integrated Planning Grant. The Wenatchee waterfront is an entire area that is being transformed by community vision. Bringing brownfield revitalization into the City of Wenatchee's plan for this area was an important step for this community. The City used an Integrated Planning Grant to develop a plan for reuse of the Worthen Street landfill site, which helped the City move forward with their vision for the overall waterfront. Integrated Planning Grants can fund preliminary work to help communities develop comprehensive strategies for cleanup and reuse of a contaminated site. -----For more information on Brownfields Integrated Planning Grants, see http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/tcp/brownfields/IP-grants.html The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) provided funds for this video through a State and Tribal Response Program grant authorized under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), Section 128(a). This video was originally posted on the ICMA TV online channel as part of the National Brownfields 2013 Conference in May in Atlanta. -----For information about this video and other brownfields-related publications by Ecology, see Guide to Leveraging Brownfield Redevelopment for Community Revitalization, https://fortress.wa.gov/ecy/publications/SummaryPages/1009054.html Credits and acknowledgements: United States Environmental Protection Agency, City of Wenatchee, Port of Chelan County, Chelan County Public Utilities District, Pybus Public Market, International City/County Management Association (ICMA) (Ecology Publication # 13-09-052)

Johnston's Public Safety Building
 
03:07
Johnston's Public Safety Building, located at 6373 Merle Hay Road, is the first to house the Johnston Police and Fire Departments under one roof. The new facility offers more opportunities for training, improved crime and fire prevention services, and will be Johnston’s Emergency Operations Center during times of crisis and natural disasters. The PSB offers complete fire and police protection to Camp Dodge and is one of Polk County's backup Emergency Operations Centers. There are some very visual aspects to the new building that may interest you, such as a fourteen foot tall wooden monolith in the main lobby, created using maple slats, which separates the public space from the working areas of the facility. A display case on each side of the monolith will showcase the pride of the people who risk their lives every day to serve the community. At the far northeast corner of the building, a fire-training tower stands above the rest of the facility. At a towering height of forty feet, this tower not only dries the fire hoses after use, but also provides the respective departments a location for on-site training and education. A burnt cedar accent wall, located inside the Fire Department Administrative Office, uses a Japanese construction method, called Shou-Sugi-Ban, where the cedar planks are charred over an open fire to produce a fire-resistant building material. In this case, the accent wall provides a textural backdrop for the administration work area. Located in the Police Department Administration Area, a cracked glazing accent wall was created by sandwiching three layers of tempered glass. The center pane was then shattered at multiple locations to create the spider-web of fissures. Composed of local masonry, the outside design is meant to express a strong sense of civic architecture, solid and grounded. The zinc metal wall, slicing across the front of the building, emulates gun-metal bluing, expressive of the security that is provided by the two departments housed therein, a metaphorical shield for the community. The building is designed to be a landmark structure on the Merle Hay Road corridor, a facility that will stand the test of time. With care for the future, leaders are applying for LEED Silver certification, a geothermal heating and cooling system is installed, a backup generator will allow the building to operate no matter the conditions or crisis, and the size of the building is equipped to serve Johnston’s public safety needs for the next 50 years and beyond. All of this happened while staying under the voter-approved budget. Public Safety Building Fact Sheet: - Johnston voters approved a bond referendum in 2011, with 82.28% of the vote, to build the Public Safety Building - The 46,000 square foot building is the first time Johnston’s Fire and Police Departments are under the same roof - The land size is 4.3 acres - Leaders are applying for LEED Silver certification - The PSB has geothermal heating and cooling - FEMA awarded a Hazard Mitigation Grant to help pay for a backup generator for the Public Safety Building. They city's cost is reduced by 34% because of the FEMA funding.

USACE - Helping with Sandy Recovery Efforts
 
00:34
Under mission assignment from the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) awarded an $88 million task order under existing Advance Contracting Initiative contract to ECC Corporate, 1240 Bayshore Highway, Burlingame, Calif., to remove debris caused by Hurricane Sandy within New York areas impacted by the storm. ECC is removing household trash, debris, and vegetation from homes and businesses in the state of New York. This includes white goods (e.g., refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners), electronics, household hazardous waste chemicals, and construction debris of homes and businesses. Debris removal does not include removal of new construction material used for repair and restoration. The material is being hauled to temporary collection sites around the city then removed to permanent landfills. As of Nov. 13, crews have cleared about 20,680 cubic yards of debris from storm-damaged areas. Currently, nearly 300 loaders, bobcats, backhoes, dump and long haul trucks are working to remove debris under this Corps-managed FEMA mission. Within one week, USACE is anticipating having more than 1,300 pieces of contracted debris-removal equipment clearing an estimated 3.6 million cubic yards of material. Business owners interested in supporting Hurricane Sandy debris removal can visit http://www.nad.usace.army.mil/BusinessWithUs/Contracting.aspx to download a fillable form. Once completed, the form should be e-mailed to postsandycontracting@usace.army.mil. The information will be provided to current Advance Contracting Initiative contractors that have been awarded post-Sandy recovery contracts and to Corps acquisition teams and contracting officers who are planning future solicitations. Submission of the form does not guarantee you will be notified of all contracting opportunities. Video courtesy Mikell Moore, ACE-IT videographer. More information at www.usace.army.mil.

Technical Guidelines For Resilience House Construction To Climate Change
 
09:31
The effects of urbanization and climate change are converging in dangerous ways. Cities are major contributors to climate change: although they cover less than 2 per cent of the earth’s surface, cities consume 78 per cent of the world’s energy and produce more than 60% of all carbon dioxide and significant amounts of other greenhouse gas emissions, mainly through energy generation, vehicles, industry, and biomass use. This Video is produced as a result of UN-Habitat in collaboration with Malteser International and funding from ECHO implemented a project to construct cost-effective disaster resistant houses. It provides a guidance to community builders, local authorities, and other stakeholders to reconstruct resilient houses as well as water supply and sanitation destroyed by the 2013 flooding in Siem Reap and Battambang Provinces of Cambodia. At the same time, cities and towns are heavily vulnerable to climate change. Hundreds of millions of people in urban areas across the world will be affected by rising sea levels, increased precipitation, inland floods, more frequent and stronger cyclones and storms, and periods of more extreme heat and cold. In fact, many major coastal cities with populations of more than 10 million people are already under threat. Climate change may also negatively impact infrastructure and worsen access to basic urban services and quality of life in cities. In addition, most of the vital economic and social infrastructure, government facilities, and assets are located in cities. The most affected populations are the urban poor – i.e. slum dwellers in developing countries – who tend to live along river banks, on hillsides and slopes prone to landslides, near polluted grounds, on decertified land, in unstable structures vulnerable to earthquakes, and along waterfronts in coastal areas. Despite these risks, many cities have not yet addressed climate change. The reasons include a lack of relevant city policies and action plans; existence of regulations on urban planning and environment which have not been adjusted to manage climate change; slow response to climate disasters due to lack of capacity and resources; and lack of public awareness on climate variability and climate change-induced hazard mitigation. However, when properly planned, capacitated, and managed through the appropriate governance structures, cities can be places of innovation and efficiency. Together with their local authorities, they have the potential to diminish the causes of climate change (mitigation) and effectively protect themselves from its impacts (adaptation).

Enhanced Small Quantity Generator Inspection Program  / Collier County Recycles 2016
 
03:13
Collier County Recycles 2016 / Collier County Small Quantity Generator Program 2016: The Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Department’s (SHWMD) mission is to provide an efficient, safe and convenient programs for the collection and proper disposal of household materials for residents and small businesses in Collier County. Households often use and store many chemical products that are hazardous. Products such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides contain potentially hazardous ingredients requiring special care when being disposed of. Improper disposal of these chemical products include pouring them down a drain, on the ground, into storm sewers or, in some cases, putting them out with the trash. The dangers of such disposal methods might not be immediately obvious, but improper disposal of these wastes can pollute the environment and pose a serious threat to human health. All SHWMD Recycling Drop-off Centers collect used oil, antifreeze, gasoline, diesel fuel, used oil filters, electronics, fluorescent bulbs and latex paint. These items are removed from our facilities by certified hazardous waste management vendors for final disposal, promoting a safe and healthy environment for our residents. Enhanced Small Quantity Generator Inspection Program To protect public health, safety, and the environment from the improper management of hazardous waste, SHWMD staff perform regular Compliance Assistance Verification (CAV) inspections of businesses that have the potential to generate, store, transport, or dispose of hazardous waste in Collier County. Each year more than 1/5 of the more than 5,000 businesses receive CAV inspections. Through this program, generators of hazardous waste are educated as to their legal responsibilities regarding managing/disposing of hazardous waste. During on-site inspections staff request and examine documentation that identifies the types of waste generated and how the waste is disposed of. Documentation may consist of hazardous waste manifests, shipping documents, and/or a bill of lading. In most cases, CAV inspections are unannounced. In addition to documenting any compliance issues, staff makes suggestions regarding waste reduction, recycling, and other best management practices for hazardous waste management and disposal. This program is a means of complying with Collier County's Water Pollution Control Program Ordinance 89-20; Florida Statues 403.7225, 403.7234, 403.7236, and 403.7238; Collier County's NPDES Permit Requirements; Growth Management Plan CCME Elements; and, the Collier County Land Development Code Section 3.06, Ground Water Protection. Pollutant Storage Tank Compliance Verification Program The Pollutant Storage Tank Compliance Verification Program strives to provide businesses with detailed information concerning the equipment and environmental status at pollutant storage tank facilities located in Collier County. SHWMD staff will provide thorough follow-up of inquiries and experienced feedback, in a professional relationship with our business tank facility owners, concerned citizens, contractors, engineers, environmental consultants, real estate agents, attorneys and other government agencies. Interdepartmental Tanks Program SHWMD works closely with Collier County's Risk Management and other departments that manage storage tanks to ensure that all county-owned storage tanks are properly managed, registered as required, and are adequately insured. Currently there are nearly 300 county-owned tanks. The team also works closely with county representatives in the preparation and implementation of Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure plans to comply with EPA rules, as well as providing the required annual training to facility operators. Spill Response Instructions have also been individually created for each county-owned facility with storage tanks. The plans are designed to enhance the county’s capability to respond to, and efficiently clean up, any pollutant spills in a quick and effective manner.
