Title: Ordinance amending the Environment Code to eliminate the requirement that certain drugs (“covered drugs”) be disposed of at either a permitted hazardous waste disposal facility or permitted large municipal waste combustor, as those terms are defined by Environmental Protection Agency regulations, or at a facility that provides equivalent or superior environment and human health protection to such facilities, and to instead require that covered drugs be disposed of at a waste disposal facility operating in compliance with all local, state, and federal requirements applicable to that waste disposal facility; to require regular reporting of the compliance status of disposal facilities used; to change drug wholesalers’ obligation to update the City’s list of covered drug producers from an annual update to an update on request of the Environment Department’s Director; to remove the requirement that operators of a drug stewardship plan receive prior approval of a change in manufacturers, and instead add a requirement that such operators receive prior approval of a change in disposal facilities used; and affirming the Planning Department’s determination under the California Environmental Quality Act.
