Jerry Hill’s proposedregulation of shredded automobilematerial — like that processed at aRedwood City site beset by fireslast year — passed out of the stateSenate this week and now theAssembly will consider if facili-ties handling vehicle shredderwaste should no longer be exemptfrom hazardous waste laws.The Senate voted 23 to 12 infavor of Senate Bill 1249 whichwill require the Department of Toxic Substances Control to fullyanalyze metal shredding facilitiesstatewide and develop regulationsregarding treatment, transport anddisposal to avoid contamination,explosion or other potential haz-ards. Hill also proposes eliminat-ing exemptions dating from 1988which spare vehicle shreddingfacilities from the same laws thatgovern other shredding facilities.The opposition “felt they werealready regulated by other agen-cies and didn’t want to be duplica-tively regulated and I agree withthat but they’re not regulated fortoxic substances,” Hill said.Jill Rodby, the public relationsand government affairs managerfor SimsNorthern Californiaregion, could not speak on behalf of the industry but said she under-stood its significant concernsinclude the expansion of theDTSC’s authority over an entirefacility rather than just its wastestreams and the lack of enforce-ment priority for facilities thatcan’t confirm they meet legalrequirements for removing materi-als needing special handling likeoils.
