The California Integrated Waste Management Board collection consists of 34.5 cubic feet of textual records covering the years
1974-2004 and is organized into seven series: Board Meeting Packets, Bill Files, Hearing Files, Budget File, Subject File,
Legislative Proposals, and Board Ex Parte Communication. Some recurring topics in the collection include: solid waste management
and resource recovery; waste reduction, recycling, and reuse; beverage container recycling; abandoned vehicle recycling and
disposal; cleaned-up solid waste disposal sites; waste tire disposal; regulated landfills; proper disposal of used oil; the
reuse and recycling of household hazardous waste such as batteries; safe disposal of medical waste; and air and water quality.
The California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) was a state agency charged with recycling and waste reduction. The
mission of the Board was to promote the reduction of waste whenever possible; to manage all materials to their highest and
best use; and to protect public health and safety, and the environment. During its existence, the California Integrated Waste
Management Board worked to implement programs to seek a higher and better use for an estimated 92 million tons of waste generated
each year in California.
