Local Enforcement Agency Overview

CalRecycle is the State department responsible for ensuring that State waste management programs are carried out in compliance with State and federal regulations and statutes. Local Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) are designated by the governing body of a county or city and, upon certification by CalRecycle, are empowered to implement delegated non-hazardous waste management programs, to ensure compliance with applicable State solid waste laws, to permit and enforce conditions at solid waste facilities.

LEAs have the primary responsibility for ensuring the correct operation and closure of solid waste facilities in the state. They also have responsibilities for guaranteeing the proper storage and transportation of solid wastes. For those facilities or operations not in compliance, the LEA has the authority to issue and enforce Compliance Orders, Corrective Action Orders, Cease and Desist Orders, and civil penalties. The Department of Health Services is the LEA for the County and the incorporated cities within the County. The Environmental Health Director is the State designated LEA and is responsible for direction and management of the LEA.
