1 Format 4.0 – Update Ohio EPA/SWMD Workgroup August 18, 2011

2 Agenda for Presentation  Review structure and basic concepts  Example from a draft chapter  Discuss Chapter V (Programs)  What comes next?

3 Format Structure Basic Concepts  Technical information in appendices  prescriptive  More Readable Narrative in Body  customized

4 Format Structure Basic Concepts  “Build” the appendices first  Calculations and analysis  Compose body of the plan second  Conclusions and final numbers transferred from appendices A B C D E F G H I Plan

5 Format Structure Basic Concepts  More energy spent on strategic decision making  Less energy spent on technical plan writing issues  Hopefully, fewer NBAO comments

6 The Solid Waste Management Plan Body of plan will consist of 6 chapters 1. Introduction 2. District Profile 3. Waste Generation 4. Landfill/Disposal Methods 5. Waste Reduction and Recycling Programs 6. Cost and Financing of Plan Implementation Plan

7 The Solid Waste Management Plan Appendices  Multiple appendices  Contain instructions, table templates, and suggestions  SWMD will replace instructions with SWMD-specific information % # Generation Programs

9 And now…. …to the GINORMOUS sticky notes! Sticky notes ahead!!

10 Format Structure – Chapter Organization  “Purpose” Text Box  Provided for plan reader  Explains reason for the chapter  Writer will leave in SWMD’s plan  Instructions Text Box  Provided for plan writer  Explain what is to be provided and how to provide it  Writer will remove for SWMD’s plan

11 Format Structure – Chapter Organization  Headers  Delineate sections required within chapter  “Reminders” to include information about particular topics  Writer will leave in the SWMD’s plan  Sample Text  Provide examples of appropriate text  The plan writer will remove for SWMD’s plan  Sample text in Format generally simpler/less comprehensive than needed for SWMD’s plan

16 QUESTIONS? (About Structure)

17 V. WASTE REDUCTION AND RECYCLING PROGRAMS An overview of Chapter V

18 Chapter VWaste Reduction and Recycling Programs Contents:  Discussion of past and projected diversion rates  Summary of conclusions, and priorities  Program Descriptions

19 Chapter VWaste Reduction and Recycling Programs Writer will use information from a number of appendices: G.Diversion Rates I.Recycling Infrastructure Inventory J.Reference Year Opportunity to Recycle/ Demonstration of Achieving Goal 1 K.Strategic Program Evaluation L.Outreach Plan and General Education Requirements M.Overall Conclusions and Descriptions of Programs to be Provided

20 G.Diversion Rates All SWMDs will calculate rates Appendix will contain:  Calculations  Presentation of rates  Minimal supporting text 25.43

21 I.Recycling Infrastructure Inventory Includes: Residential  Defined in appendix  Typical recycling opportunities Other  Commercial/industrial recycling opportunities  Material collection programs Yard Waste Programs  Facilities  Community collection services

22 J.Reference Year Opportunity to Recycle & Goal 1 Demonstration Reference year opportunity to recycle:  All SWMDs will calculate and present  Use infrastructure from Appendix I  Assign population credits  Default  Weight of material  Survey

23 J.Reference Year Opportunity to Recycle & Goal 1 Demonstration Demonstrate achieving Goal 1: Standard demonstration OR Alternative demonstrations PAYT start-up Non-subscription start-up Multi-county drop-off Extensive instructions due to complexity

24 J.Reference Year Opportunity to Recycle/Goal 1 Demonstration Demonstrate achieving Goal 1, continued: Commercial sector demonstration Other components:  Target waste diversion rates  Encourage participation

25 K.Program Evaluation Deliberate process for making decisions Look back:  How are existing programs working?  Where are we strong, where are we weak? Look forward:  What do we still need/want to do?  Where take SWMD during planning period?

26 K.Strategic Program Evaluation Series of Analyses:  Recycling Infrastructure Analysis  geographic coverage, population density, appropriateness…  Recycling Infrastructure Participation Analysis  Waste Composition Analysis  recovering largest waste streams

27 K.Strategic Program Evaluation Series of Analyses, cont.  Sector Analysis  programs for all waste generators  Economic Incentive Analysis  e.g. consider PAYT, incentive grants…  Restricted/Difficult to Manage Waste Analysis  programs for yard waste, scrap tires, electronics, etc.

28 K.Strategic Program Evaluation Series of Analyses, cont.  Diversion Analysis  trend, relation to goal, other SWMDs, state…  Special Program Needs Analysis  unique needs, allowable uses, facility operation…  Financial Analysis  available and potential money, cost effectiveness…  State Plan Goal Analysis  programs to meet all goals

29 M.Conclusions/Program Descriptions Appendix M will:  Describe the SWMD’s conclusions from the analyses  Provide the SWMD’s priorities  Describe the programs the SWMD will provide (based on priorities, and resources)  New programs  Changes to existing programs  Continue existing programs unchanged

30 M.Conclusions/Program Descriptions Program Descriptions  Discuss both “as is” and the “will be” in the same description  Detailed descriptions in this appendix  Information in appendix used for summaries in Chapter V

31 Chapter VWaste Reduction and Recycling Programs Contents:  Discussion of past and projected diversion rates  Summary of conclusions and priorities

32 Chapter VWaste Reduction and Recycling Programs Contents, continued  Program Descriptions  Summaries of descriptions from Appendix M  For existing programs, summaries of “what was” in reference year and descriptions of “what will be” during planning period  For new programs, summary of “what will be”  Format provides headings as placeholders

34 QUESTIONS?

35 What Happens Next? The Format will be a standing item on future agendas Draft Format chapters on SWMD/Planning Page when draft chapters posted

36 What Happens Next?  Comments can be submitted through the web page to Ernie  Also, call to talk directly  Will have group discussions  Workgroup  Web-based sessions I love to talk about the format!
