Palo Alto’s HHW Program began in 1983. Palo Alto was one of the first jurisdictions in the cellular fibrous histiocytoma state to provide collection of household hazardous wastes to its cellular fibrous histiocytoma residents in response to community concerns about toxic wastes in cellular fibrous histiocytoma the environment. The objectives of the HHW Program were to provide a cellular fibrous histiocytoma point of contact for educating the public about the safe cellular fibrous histiocytoma use, storage, disposal and alternatives to hazardous products , and to help reduce the release of HHW to storm cellular fibrous histiocytoma drains, landfill and the sanitary sewer. In 1986, the Tanner Bill (AB 2948) was passed requiring counties to establish hazardous waste management plans cellular fibrous histiocytoma (Health & Safety Code 25135-25135.9). In 1987, the Greene Bill (SB 477) was passed requiring each City to either adopt a city cellular fibrous histiocytoma hazardous waste management plan or incorporate the County’s plan into the City’s plan.

In 1989, AB 939 was passed mandating that cities adopt and submit cellular fibrous histiocytoma a HHW Element, a document that sets policies, objectives and programs for collection of HHW in compliance with cellular fibrous histiocytoma state mandates. Palo Alto’s Household Hazardous Waste Element (HHWE) ( June, 1991) evaluated HHW alternatives and selected the development of a permanent cellular fibrous histiocytoma HHW facility to phase out the monthly collection events that cellular fibrous histiocytoma were taking place during that time. At the time, since Palo Alto’s program predated the Santa Clara County (SCC) program, and since Palo Alto had a mature well-run HHW program, Palo Alto decided to continue its own program instead of cellular fibrous histiocytoma joining the SCC HHW Program.
