Recommended Action
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends that the City Council adopt Ordinance No. 21-0006.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
There are no fiscal implications associated with the recommended action.

CalRecycle requires cities to adopt a Senate Bill (SB) 1383 ordinance by January 1, 2022. On October 19, 2021, City Staff gave a presentation about the ordinance and Cal Recycle, RWG Law and Waste Management representatives were available for questions. City Council made a determination of exemption under CEQA, and introduced Ordinance No. 21-0006, on a 5-0 vote. At this time, staff recommends that the City Council conduct second reading and adopt Ordinance No. 21-0006. A summary of the ordinance was published in accordance with state law.

The City Council finds that this Ordinance is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act ("CEQA") pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines Sections 15061(b)(3) and 15308 on the grounds that it can be seen with certainty that the enhanced solid waste regulations, as provided for in this Ordinance will not have a significant effect on the environment and that the new requirements, which strengthen requirements for the handling of solid waste, represent actions by a regulatory agency (the City) for the protection of the environment.

The City Attorney has reviewed this report and determined that no additional legal analysis is necessary.
