Footnotes

SANITATION

[1] Resource Demand Points are a relative measure of the amount of resources needed to service a given facility. For a baseline, we use the amount of resources needed to service a Small Food Facility.

 

[2] Clients with unresolved sanitation hazards require additional time for participation in hearings

      and other proceedings. This may necessitate additional fees. 

 

[3] Chlorination testing, construction plan review, additional inspections, consultations, etc.

 

CHEMICAL WASTE

[1]  No change to methodology.  Adjusted for rising regulator fees and contractor/vendors costs. Direct administrative support costs minimized via collections automation and client control of accounts.     

 

To accommodate C&G rules - recharges are implemented near the time of service based on estimated costs to be adjusted upon receipt of accurate vendor bills (sometimes greater than 60 days).

    

Unknowns (1)* - ​This fee is based on our existing labor rate and an approximation of the average staff time needed for processing these items.

 

 [2]  In order to simplify the recharge process, the following waste streams have been combined into one consolidated waste stream: Lab chemicals; Reactives and non-recyclable mercury;     

    

Contaminated Debris and sharps; Consolidated solvents, pants, oils and misc liquids; and batteries.

 

 [3]  Special projects include construction support, laboratory decontamination,  clean-outs and off-site waste pickups (contracted out as appropriate).    

    

Extraordinary waste includes non-routine waste for which a pre-established disposal rate does not exist. 

    

Extraordinary Waste - Cylinders  (3)* - ​This fee is based on our existing labor rate and an approximation of the average staff time needed to process a cylinder.

 

 [4]  EH&S Technician and Specialist support for Special Projects:  This rate is used in cases where vendor support is either unavailable or is inappropriate for a particular project.  This rate may also be used when the markup amount for vendor-supported projects (see line item 2) significantly exceeds the amount of staff time needed to support a particular project.    

 

The decision to use EH&S labor, or to apply this rate in conjunction with a vendor-supported project, shall be made at the discretion of the EH&S Hazardous Materials Manager.
