Training Sessions for Members

Diana Vigilante was provided quotes for an 8-hour refresher HHW training for the ANJHHWC.  She stated that we need to figure out who to have and where to have it, but it is likely to be somewhere in Central NJ.  We want to do it sometime in early winter before we begin our 2013 HHW events.  A motion was made to approve the J Gibbons quote in the amount of $1,300.  This motion was seconded and approved by all.  We anticipate the fee for members will be $100/person.  We will try to get registration forms this fall for the winter sessions.

E-Waste Update

ANJHHWC’s E-waste campaign is was commenced thanks to Covanta  JoAnn gave update on our ad campaign and lack of action by NJDEP, in contravention of the law requiring NJDEP to do provide an education effort to support the E-waste law.  So far NJDEP has not complied with this requirement.

When NJDEP discovered the tool kit went out to retailers, NJDEP contacted ANJHHWC and asked how the NJDEP can help.  JoAnn got an E-mail back from Vicky K. of NJDEP asking follow-up questions regarding the ANJHHWC campaign but to date, nothing else materialized.

JoAnn mentioned the ANJHHWC had a virtual subcommittee meeting a few weeks ago and that we decided we need about $10,000 for a promotional campaign if we use the battery campaign as a template.  ANJHHWC received pricing on ads, of which $5,800 would be for transit ads, covering 19 of the 21 counties with spending the rest on web ads.  JoAnn thinks this is another opportunity for manufacturers to step up and help out in the ads.  Newtech offered some support and JoAnn explained how we will try to spread the wealth and provide the promotional coverage as is appropriate for the vendors.

Regarding the tool kit mailing, JoAnn gave a summary of what happened to distribute this over the past months.  Reenee reported that a radio station up by her got the packet and transmitted the PSA over the air on several occasions.

JoAnn brought up the concept of NJ and NY teaming up on a grant application for an EPA grant on a regional basis that gets NY off the ground and gets funding for NJ.  Ken Armelino from Covanta serves on the NY Recycling Board and he brought it up with them and the “team-up” concept works, so we decided to get a committee together to work on this grant.  There is potential for $216,000 from the EPA.  JoAnn is looking for a little help on this.

JoAnn asked Guy about NJDEP action regarding our E-Waste Campaign.  Guy stated New Jersey’s procurement procedures for the NJDEP required them issue an RFP if the cost of something will be over $17,500.  He suggested that if the ANJHHWC modifies the grant proposal to be under the $17,500 and submit and scope of work to NJDEP, they maybe permitted to award us this grant as a service.  This would be after they verify the ANJHHWC’s proposal is the cheapest of at least 3 proposers.  JoAnn stated she will be sending a letter to NJDEP letting them know our intention to apply for the previously mentioned EPA grant in cooperation with NJDEP.

Producer Responsibility Issues:

JoAnn mentioned several of us participated in a paint recycling discussion at a recent Recycling Coordinators meeting and this issue is come to the front since Oregon recently implemented such a program.  JoAnn stated that even though Union County doesn’t spend money on paint management directly, they do spend time discussing proper paint management with residents that call in for information.  JoAnn liked what Oregon is doing in that drop-off sites are retail establishments.   ANJR sent out a survey last week following this meeting asking questions on each county about their paint amounts and costs.  For those that pay by car the cost and the quantity of paint management is estimated to be around 65% of the costs of HHW management.

Guy mentioned the industry is likely to sponsor legislation themselves in NJ.

Guy stated the Governor conditionally vetoed amendments to Electronic Recycling Act which had proposed to bring enforcement of E-waste regulations in line with enforcement currently performed under solid waste management act.

Procurement of Services

Reene of Sussex County brought up procurement issues she had in a recent bid that enabled her agency to not select an unqualified bidder.  She shared the language from her recent bid that enabled her to disqualify a low bidder that was determined to be unreliable.    He bid requires submission of DOT records from bidders so she could check on them and their records with respect to DOT issues.  Sussex Co. now also requires a certification of compliance or non-compliance from bidders as a means to evaluate each bidder.  Each bidder had some type of infractions, but the firm they rejected didn’t include this required certification and which provided the ability to dismiss the low bid.

Insurance and bonding are other elements that can be used to keep the bidders as reliable vendors.

Propane and Other Types Tanks

Ron Berenato of AtlanticCounty potentially found a market for a variety of cylinders from Ohio like propane, Freon, O2, etc. The problem is he is in Ohio and needs a critical mass to come here to NJ.   Ron and Fred Stanger agreed to form a subcommittee to explore this concept.  Insulation in the form of 2-part tanks are a new item showing up now as HHW.  They are a severe problem now.

County Program Updates:

  • Middlesex – No Major updates, status quo.
  •  Somerset – Cutting back in programs due to economy.  Sheriffs are taking drugs at their programs.  They recently executed a new E-waste contract with Newtech and now people can drop-off E-waste weekdays.
  •  Hudson – Small drop in participation due to no longer advertise accepting latex paint at programs, but they do still accept latex if delivered, short of that, HudsonCounty is status quo.
  •  Passaic – 3 days/year, status quo.
  •  Morris – Participation is up slightly from last year.  MorrisCounty has noticed more and more tanks for insulation coming into the programs.  Isocyanate is the foam insulation product we are all discussing.
  •  Ocean – They had 5 events in spring and 5 events in fall.  Participation is down since they have year-round paint program but the paint costs for the County are through the roof.  Ernie Kuhlwein asked members at the meeting about what they do with ammunition and firework waste.
  •  Mercer – Status quo, 3 scheduled events and 2 E-waste events.
  •  Camden – 6 one-day events and  3 E-waste events.  Car counts seem about stable, with volume going up a bit.  They current collect and spend a lot on latex paint, they are contemplating dropping the acceptance of it in next year.  They are looking to consider a permanent E-Waste drop-off site.
  •  Sussex – Their program is status quo with 2 events/year.  They have never taken latex paint at their programs.
  •  Gloucester – They dropped from 8 days to 4 days last year but numbers slowed down a bit and 4 days seems to be the appropriate level to meet the demand.  They haven’t taken latex paint since 2008 and it saved them quite a bit of money.  They did this because they want to use their hazmat money for hazardous materials and not the non-hazardous material such a latex paint.
  •  Salem – They increased events from 2 to 4 events though the overall volume hasn’t increased.  They expanded to 2 satellite events.  They do not accept latex.  One strange item that came into her program this year was expired home canned food, 7 cases of it from a person.   Salem provides E-waste recycling twice-a-week at their convenience center and participation keeps increasing.
  •  Atlantic – Status quo.

Vendor Updates:

  • Radiac – Nothing new and exciting but they are up a little in performing events in the Northeast.  They currently have 4-5 counties programs in New Jersey.  They see volumes of waste batteries declining now that alkalines aren’t coming into HHW programs.   Other batteries are a pain to deal with.  They now accepts smoke detectors for a cost of $25/detector as a special program if anyone is interested.
  •  MXI – They have been dabbling with Connecticut’s paint program
  •  Newtech – Renewed license with NJDEP recently – Manufacturers are pushing back on taking materials.  Battery management is an important issue in its certification process.

NJDEP Update

  • Ed Neiliwocki provided an updated on the release of grants to counties for the money collected as part of the Recycling Enhancement Act. He stated his office just received an email with preliminary numbers for REA program – Grant numbers are preliminary because the $5.5 million is a NJ Treasury estimate.    As soon as numbers are confirmed, they will send out spending guidelines.  Guy states the number will not go down.  Treasury stated there was $18 million in fund so the $5.5 million is and will be there.  This $5.5 million is in comparison to $5.5 million they distributed last year.

Next Meeting

Holiday Meeting – Chris was contacted by McLoones again like last year.  Chris will evaluate prices and will try to select one of their sites down the shore.  We are targeting Dec. 5, 2012.

Adjournment – The meeting was adjourned at 11:55am.

2010-09-29 – ANJHHWC Meeting Minutes

Call to Order – President Ron Berenato opened the meeting at 10:20 a.m. by welcoming all to the Middlesex County Fire Academy and thanking Chris Sikorski for coordinating this meeting location and food for the meeting.

Approval of May 25, 2010 ANJHHWC Minutes– Mr. Berenato stated that the minutes from the previous meeting held at the baseball stadium in Trenton were prepared by Larry Gindoff and posted on the ANJHHWC’s website (www.NJHazWaste.com).   Mr. Berenato then asked for a motion to approve the minutes.  A motion was made and seconded and approved by all present voting members.  Mr. Gindoff then provided a brief overview of the ANJHHWC website and how he transitioned it and copied the old material from the original site that had been running since the mid-90s to the newly formatted website.

Selection of Financial Committee to Review Records – Due to the ANJHHWC’s non-profit status, it is required that a financial committee be appointed to review the association’s financial records. Members of the committee cannot be current or recent board members.  A motion was made to establish the committee and this motion was seconded.  All members then voted in favor of its establishment with the exception of the ANJHHWC Treasurer, Chris Sikorski, who abstained.  Mark Vangieri of Bergen County suggested that an auditing firm, like the one used by ANJR, can be used, and he believes the cost is not too high, if the ANJHHWC want to proceed in that manner.  Tom Burbridge, Morris County and Melissa Harvey, Somerset County both volunteered to sit on this financial committee and to meet with Chris Sikorski prior to the December meeting to review the ANJHHWC’s financial records.

Treasurer’s Report – ANJHHWC Treasurer, Chris Sikorski provided a report on the ANJHHWC’s finances.  He stated the balance in the Association’s bank account is $10,255.21 and that NewTech Recycling joined as the most recent commercial member.  Chris then provided a run-down on the RBRC battery grant and spending associated with it.  The ANJHHWC spending on the grant is complete as it has spent a total of $18,000 on promoting the “If It’s Rechargeable It’s Recyclable” campaign.  $15,000 came from the RBRC grant, $1,000 came from Covanta Energy, $1,000 came from the Merk grant and $1,000 was matched and provided by the ANJWWHC.  A motion was made to accept the treasurer’s report and it was seconded and approved by all.

Electronics Recycling Act and Disposal Ban Starting In 2011– Discussion ensued regarding how the counties are beginning to transition to operating their electronics recycling programs in consideration of the new Electronics Recycling Act (“Act”).  Most counties reported that they have been contacted by a variety of representatives (electronic recyclers/demanufacturers) of manufacturers that have proposed, in one way or another, to take over and pay for individual county programs as their way to meet their obligations of the Act.  While most counties are in the middle of existing demanufacturing contracts, and therefore are not in a position to act on any of these proposals, a couple of counties have already been able to figure out how to take advantage of these proposals and have entered into contracts to have their programs operated by firms as part of the Act.  Guy Watson of the NJDEP requested that people send him copies of proposals they receive if they involve facilities in NJ so that the NJDEP could assess their approval status to operate in NJ.  Mr. Watson admitted the NJDEP needs a much better way to regulate and approve New Jersey’s class “D” recycling facilities than what is current going on.

Several counties at this point still were trying to figure out how to react to what are in essence unsolicited proposals from the manufacturers’ representatives. Guy Watson reiterated that it is the manufacturers’ obligation to get these programs paid for and up and running and not necessarily the obligation of the individual counties.  Mr. Watson stated that his Department will send a letter to all municipalities educating them about the Act and its implementation prior to January 2011.

A question came up about knowing which manufacturers these demanufactures represent and the members were informed that many of the demanufacturers have non-disclosure agreements with their clients and therefore cannot disclose who they represent.

Summary of County Programs

  • Burlington – They run permanent facility and satellite facility and no one-day events.  Latex paint is getting to expensive to haul for them.  It was suggested to look into using it as a landfill cover application in something called “Posi-Shell” which you can spray onto a landfill face to supplement daily cover operations.  ACUA reported they send their latex paint to Covanta for energy recovery but many counties are still in a dry-it-out and throw-it out mode with respect to latex paint.
  • Salem – They have a problem with their current HHW contractor for not provided a forklift at their programs which is needed to unload farmer’s waste delivered on flatbed trucks.  Salem also distributed magnets they sent out as a postcard mailer and discussed problems with the plastic coating used to keep the magnet attached to the postcard.
  • Sussex – Running 6 events for the year and they report they are currently withholding some payment to their HHW contractor while waiting for the return of executed manifests.
  • Somerset – They are about to conduct the last of 6 events for the year and plan on conducting the same number in 2011.
  • Morris County – in 2010 cut events from 5 to 4 and this did not seem to be an issue.  Participation is down a little in 2010 compared to previous years.  Not as many people moving seems to have impacted participation and people are getting into better habits of only buying only what they need.  Morris County will probably conduct 4 days again in 2011 while continuing to run its permanent facility as it has in the past.
  • Gloucester – They conduct 8 programs this year and they also see participation going down a bit.  They have recently stopped accepting latex paint and that has cut their cost dramatically. Gloucester anticipates cutting the number of programs in the future due to decreasing participation and as a way to save money.
  • Camden – They have conducted 6 programs a year and anticipate keeping that frequency for the near future. Their participation continues to increase.  They anticipate stopping the accepting latex in the future.
  • Mercer – They conduct 3 HHW days and 2 electronic recycling days and anticipate keeping this schedule for 2011.
  • Union – They anticipate keeping the same basic schedule in 2011 as they had in 2010.
  • Middlesex – They conduct 7 one-day events a year and their participation is waning a bit.  They continue to operate their latex drop-off program
  • Monmouth – Permanent facility continues to increase in participation; claims many people are cleaning out their homes in preparation to leave the state permanently.  They continue to conduct 2 one-day events in addition to operating their permanent facility.
  • Bergen – They conduct 8 one-day events a year and plan on doing the same in 2011.  They accept latex paint at their events and participation is about the same as the past.
  • Passaic – They conduct 3 one-day programs a year and will do so in 2011.  They also accept latex paint as apart of their programs.
  • Atlantic – Conduct 7 one-day programs a year.

Medicine Take-Back Programs – Discussion about promoting medicine take-back programs followed.  It was suggested that the ANJHHWC may want to create and distribute public service announcements promoting these programs similar to what it did with respect to battery management.

Adjournment: Meeting was adjourned at approximately 11:30.

Executive Board Meeting – The executive board conducted one if its required quarterly meetings between 11:30 a.m. and 12:00 noon following the adjournment of the regular meeting.  Discussions included scheduling the December 2010 meeting and preparing an updated membership form for 2011 membership.

Location: Bayshore Recycling / Converted Organics Meeting Room, Keasbey, NJ

Call to Order – The meeting was opened by President Alain Fortier at 9:40 a.m. at BayShore Recycling facility in Keasbey. Self-introductions followed.

President Alain Fortier Thanked BayShore Recycling for hosting our meeting at their facility.

E-waste: Carole Tolmachewich reported on the E-Waste Stakeholders meeting which was held on Monday, March 31 at NJDEP.

“DEP’s Assistant Commissioner Nancy Wittenberg and Recycling Bureau Chief Guy Watson invited manufacturers, commercial recyclers and county recycling officials to a Public Hearing. During the session, they provided a few broad hints as to what the regulations will contain, reviewed compliance deadlines for the program’s first year and received input from the regulated community.

Representatives of several county recycling programs expressed concerns that the manufacturers might shut down their programs once they have recycled tonnages equivalent to their market shares. And those public programs would end up shouldering the burden and the cost of electronic recycling.

When asked for a response as to how they might utilize existing public recycling programs in New Jersey, the manufacturer reps gave no indication.  A representative from Sharp said that his company has partnered with Goodwill and other community and retailer groups in other states that require e-recycling.

MRM President David Thompson said “It depends on what services the collectors are offering and whether we can establish a business relationship with them.” He added: “There are very few companies that can properly handle CRTs” (cathode ray tubes).

Watson noted that the DEP would require manufacturer plans to explain how the material would be handled at every stage of the recycling chain to assure that material does not flow to undeveloped countries where lead and other dangerous materials in the products could cause environmental and health problems without adequate safety and processing requirements.

He also warned that no manufacturer would be permitted to sell their TVs or computers in New Jersey after Oct 1, 2010 if the plans they submit are not “administratively complete.” He said that every plan would be required to offer at least one convenient collection point per county.” Source: Frank Brill, EnviroPolitics Blog.

Carole Tolmachewich also reported that Middlesex County is having a difficult time obtaining tonnages reports from Goodwill Industries.

Monica Gismondi stated she has no problem getting tonnage report from Goodwill Industries in south Jersey.

JoAnn Gemenden will send a Thank You letter to Best Buy’s Corporate Headquarters for their E-waste Recycling Program.

CFLs: Members indicated that the number of CFLs & fluorescent tubes being brought into HHW events are on the rise.

Treasurer’s Report: Chris Sikorski reported the Account balance at the time of the meeting it was $9,392.68.  Motion to accept the report was made by Ron Berenato from Atlantic County and seconded by Melinda Williams from Salem County. 

Treasurer will look in to filing taxes with IRS electronically.

Elections have been postponed until the June 4 meeting.  A nominating committee of Larry Gindoff and Renee Casapulla has been formed.

Merck grant was briefly discussed.  A sub-committee (JoAnn Gemenden, Chris Sikorski and Rich Baroch) has been formed to update the ANJHHWC’s video to a cable television format and possibly developing PSAs for radio and/or cable.

Latex Paint: Melinda Williams surveyed the attendees as to which counties are still accepting latex paints.  The following counties responded they are accepting latex paints: Middlesex, Somerset, Atlantic, Monmouth and Union counties.

Converted Organics: Jack Walsdorf gave an overview of Converted Organics, a 500 ton a day organic waste processing facility, accepting source separated food waste at the mid $40.00 per ton range.  Converted Organics produces two end products: solid and liquid fertilizers in ten days.
