                                                                                                                                          Page 4 of 4

 17. LEA Conditions (Continued):

 B.   Provisions:

 1.   Additional information concerning the design and operation of this facility shall be furnished on request and within a time frame specified by the LEA.

 2.   Waste tires received by the transfer facility shall be stored in a manner that minimizes vector propagation, vector harborages and potential fire
      hazards. Waste tires shall be handled as described in the approved RFI and according to conditions for a waste tire facility permit exclusion.

 3.   The storage areas for diverted wastes and materials, roadrailers, transfer trailers, appliances, source separated recyclables, or other salvaged and
      recyclable materials, received at the facility shall be orderly, shall not create a nuisance, nor harborage for rodents, and shall be cleaned according to
      an approved schedule. Salvaged and recyclable materials shall not be allowed to accumulate in quantities that restrict traffic lanes, or limit access for
      proper maintenance of the facility. The LEA may establish, or may require the operator to establish, maximum storage duration for any material(s)
      that create a nuisance, or health and safety hazard.

 4.   Hours of operation within the enclosed transfer building may be extended, as needed, to process solid wastes received and to conduct equipment
      maintenance. This provision is to allow the operator additional time necessary to remove wastes from the tipping floor at the end of the operational
      day. Operational hours shall be consistent with the City of Eureka ordinances and zoning restrictions.

 5.   Waste quantities, for self-monitoring and reporting purposes (calculation of permitted tons per day) shall include all municipal solid wastes and
      special wastes received and handled on the transfer station tipping floor. The quantities and types of source separated organic materials received
      shall be recorded separately and according to state minimum standards.

 6.   This permit authorizes the operation of a transfer station as described and shown in the approved September 2000 RFI and any approved RFI
      amendments accepted without revision of this permit. The facility location also includes a franchise collection operation (with a bin storage area) not
      included within the permitted facility boundary and separate from the operation of the facility.

 7.   The facility may receive appliances for reuse, or salvaging by a subcontractor designated by the operator. The operator, or their subcontractor, has
      the responsibility to comply with any applicable requirements for refrigerant and hazardous materials removal & handling when baling or processing
      appliances for salvaging.

 8.   The facility may receive sewage treatment plant solids including dried municipal sewage treatment plant sludge and wastewater grits and screenings
      according to special handling procedures in the approved RFI. Sludge shall contain a minimum 50 percent solids by weight. Sludge mixed with solid
      wastes shall not exceed a 1 to 5 ratio of sludge to municipal solid waste by weight. None of these wastes shall contain free water as prohibited by
      federal regulations.

 9.   The facility may receive non-hazardous non-friable asbestos containing wastes, non-hazardous ash from domestic sources and from demolition
      projects, fish wastes, and dead animals according to special handling procedures in the approved RFI.

 10. Before acceptance of any new special wastes, the operator shall provide information for review and approval by the City of Eureka, LEAs and other
     responsible regulatory agencies for the facility and the disposal sites.

 11. The operator shall comply with the hazardous waste screening program included in the approved RFI Load Checking Program. The operator shall
     provide information, regarding alternative management options available, to facility users in possession of prohibited wastes as discovered through
     routine load checking. The operator shall maintain and update lists for permitted and unpermitted wastes according to the disposal site criteria and
     applicable regulations.

 12. The operator shall monitor the public areas of Felt Street and West Hawthorne Street daily for nuisance dumping of solid wastes and litter. The
     operator shall collect and dispose of solid wastes and litter that have accumulated in these areas due to the presence and operation of the facility (i.e.
     nuisance dumping of waste before or after gate hours, loss of wastes from vehicles, etc.).


                                                                       [end of document]
