(A) Where a person who recycles the material is not the same person who generated the recyclable material, documentation that there is a known market for disposition of the recyclable material and any products manufactured from the recyclable material.
(B) Where the basis for the exclusions is that the recyclable material is used or reused to make a product or as a safe and effective substitute for a commercial product, a general description of the material and products, identification of the constituents or group of constituents, and their approximate concentrations, which would render the material or product hazardous under the regulations adopted pursuant to Section 25140 and 25141, if it were a waste, and the means by which the material is beneficially used.
(b) Except as provided in Section 25404.5, the governing body of a city or county may adopt an ordinance or resolution pursuant to Section 510 to pay for the actual expenses of the activities carried out by local health officers or other local public officers pursuant to subdivision (a).
(c) If a person who recycles material under a claim that the material qualifies for exclusion or exemption pursuant to Section 25143.2 is not the same person who generated the recyclable material, the person who recycles the material shall, on or before July 1, 1992, and every two years thereafter, provide a copy of the information required to be submitted pursuant to subdivision (a) to the generator of the recyclable material.
(d) The person providing the information required by subdivision (a) shall use a format developed by the California Conference of Directors of Environmental Health in consultation with the department. The department shall distribute the format to local health officers or other local public officers authorized to implement this chapter pursuant to Section 25180.
(e) A recyclable material generated in a product or raw material storage tank, a product or raw material transport vehicle or vessel, a product or raw material pipeline, or in a manufacturing process unit or an associated nonwaste treatment manufacturing unit is not subject to the requirements of this section, until the recyclable material exits the unit in which it was generated, unless the unit is a surface impoundment, or unless the material remains in the unit for more than 90 days after the unit ceases to be operated for manufacturing, storage, or transportation of the product or raw material.
(f) A local health officer or other local public officer authorized to implement this chapter pursuant to Section 25180 may exempt from subdivision (a) any person who operates antifreeze recycling units or solvent distillation units, where the recycled material is returned to productive use at the site of generation, or may require less information than that required under subdivision (a) from such a person.
