Deputy Director’s Report: Overview and Update on the: Market Assessment Action Plan (MAAP) February 7, 2006 Sustainability and Markets Committee Deputy Director’s Update report Action Plan Summary • Evaluate the Flow of Materials within the State • Focus on Pilot Program Counties • Who benefits from effort • CIWMB • Local Governments • Businesses Nature of Priority • The MAAP Effort will help shape the CIWMB’s future focus on waste diversion. • Identify barriers and future opportunities for market development • Identify diversion infrastructure • Identify barriers to increasing diversion and achieving zero waste Nature of Priority (con’t) • Develop a methodology to use statewide • Help CIWMB to better focus assistance • Focus future Waste Characterization Studies Outline of MAAP Tasks 1. Identify material types to evaluate 2. Gather CIWMB based data and develop contact lists 3. Develop preliminary material flow charts 4. Define geographic areas 5. Develop survey tool Outline of MAAP Tasks (con’t) 6. 7. 8. 9. Perform site visits Compile data Analyze data/Develop conclusions Review and critique overall efforts and results Current Status of Targets, Outcomes, and Measures 1. Identify Disposed Material Types • Paper • Corrugated (6%) • Newsprint (2%) • Miscellaneous Paper (remainder composite) (6%) • Organics • Food waste (15%) • Green waste ( 7%) 1. Identify Disposed Material Types (con’t) • C&D (18%) • Plastic (1-2%) • pete • hdpe • Misc. containers • Plastic Film (2-4%) •(Note: materials account for approximately 50% of the disposed waste stream) 2. Gather CIWMB Data and Develop Contact Lists • CIWMB staff evaluated existing • Studies • Reports • Databases • Industry contacts • Infrastructure information • Developed list of key contacts • Etc. 3. Develop Preliminary Material Flow charts • Using existing data and knowledge the MAAP team developed a series of flow charts using available data. • Flow charts are preliminary • Flow charts will be verified during site visits Flow of C&D Flow of Film Plastic • Transport Packaging and non-bag commercial/industrial film 4. Define Geographic Areas • Original proposal suggested looking at entire state • Through the collective efforts of the team a “pilot” study was developed. Pilot Program Area •MAAP Team selected four (4) counties with different characteristics: •Marin •San Francisco •Sacramento •San Joaquin 5. Develop Survey Tool • Have developed draft surveys • Working with contractor to review, evaluate, and refine to assure survey completeness. Future Efforts 6. Perform Site Visits • Once survey is finalized Board Staff will gather survey information through visits with: • Local governments • Generators • Haulers • Processors • Others Follow-up, as necessary, to obtain data Future Efforts (cont’d.) 7. Compile Data & 8. Analyze Data/Develop Conclusions Future Efforts (cont’d.) 9. Review and Critique Overall Efforts and Results: • Assess how well data shows flow • Identify barriers • Modify procedures to reduce or eliminate barriers • Report back to the Board on findings and recommendations for future work Pilot Data Integration and GIS Study • Board allocated contract funding ($75,000). • Working with IMB to develop a GIS mapping system to show the flows of materials as well as facility locations. • Will provide updates in future Deputy reports as it progresses. Timeline Completed • Identification of materials types • Development of contact lists • Identified pilot areas Partially completed • Development of survey Timeline (cont’d.) Future • Site visits • Compile data • Analyze data • Critique and development of recommendations • Develop GIS Questions?
