Last modified: 12/5/2012 5:06 PM


The Solid Waste Local Enforcement Agency, established as a result of the Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989, serves the unincorporated areas of the County and all cities except the City of San Jose which serves as its own Local Enforcement Agency. Program activities include: permitting solid waste disposal, composting and transfer facilities; inspecting landfills, transfer stations, composting facilities, and refuse collection vehicles and yards; monitoring disposal facilities to exclude hazardous wastes, medical wastes or liquid wastes; providing information to the public and industry regarding the proper disposal of solid wastes (including asbestos); and investigating complaints and mitigating problems associated with illegal dumping, disposal, or storage of solid wastes.
