Central to the SB1383 regulations is the implementation record. 1383-STATS provides a central electronic storage system for all compliance data and documents. Program docs and reports can be accessed from a single dashboard and menu. Your staff can easily check the compliance status of each program component. If CalRecycle requires an inspection, you can provide remote access by issuing temporary login credentials.
The integration of all components simplifies the creation of annual reports to CalRecycle. A single menu provides access to collection program details, hauler oversight records, the results of contamination monitoring, food recovery participants and quantities collected, education and outreach activities, and more. This summary information can be printed or exported as an Excel file.
SB1383 mandates that all program elements are defined and documented: number of containers, facilities used, allowance of plastic bags for organics, acceptance of compostable plastics, areas served – the list goes on. The program component of 1383-STATS includes easy-to-use forms with drop-down menus to simplify setup.
In the assignment component of 1383-STATS, users can create a list of their haulers and other service providers, record the areas they are authorized to serve, indicate their status (active, inactive, suspended), and identify the facilities they use. If the city or county also subscribes to FacilityStats, their haulers can easily report all of their collection and facility usage data.
SB1383 includes specific requirements for monitoring contamination in organic collection containers. The details of each route review or waste evaluation can be captured and made available for summary reports. If a city or county delegates these tasks to their hauler or a consultant, these individuals can be granted temporary login credentials to report the results of their work.
SB1383 requires cities and counties to retain copies of many documents, such as ordinances, facility docs, educational materials, policies and procedures, and waivers. 1383-STATS enables users to create a data record for each document by specifying the type and name, then clicking a button to locate the doc and upload it to the cloud. A download link is automatically created as part of the data record. Each user’s document list is searchable and sortable.
To meet CalRecycle’s requirements, 1383-STATS users can create a data record for all education and outreach materials and activities, including description, date distributed, and recipients. Copies of the materials can be uploaded to the document storage module and linked to the data record.
The food recovery component of 1383-STATS includes a database of food banks and food recovery and distribution organizations created from publicly available information. Each city and county user can edit the list of organizations within their jurisdiction, or the organizations can self-register. Commercial edible food generators such as grocery stores, food distributors, and warehouses can also self-register and use the system to report edible food quantities donated.
Copies of policies and documentation to support the issuance of waivers can be uploaded to the document storage module. Data records can be created for each waiver issued with a download link to all docs. The information and documents required to describe and support a jurisdiction’s efforts to comply with the procurements requirements of SB1383 can be entered, stored, and retrieved in the procurement component of 1383-STATS.
