Flood Damage >> Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal

Household Chemicals (i.e., Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)) can be taken to a county or municipal HHW facility for recycling or potentially reuse. Check with your local environmental health representative to see if a temporary HHW collection site has been established. If HHW cannot safely be removed from other flood debris or no recycling option is available, Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal HHW can be taken to a landfill for disposal. 

Dead Animals The property owner must follow the Emergency Livestock Disposal Policy issued by CDPHE. If the homeowner cannot meet the requirements of the preapproved plan defined in the Policy, Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal they will need to submit a disposal plan to the Department and local governing body. Alternatively, dead animals may be taken to a landfill for final disposal. 

Septage and Sewage Many waste water treatment plants were impacted by the flooding. In some cases flood waters inundated domestic wastewater treatment plants resulting in untreated and partially treated sewage leaving the plant and being carried away by flood waters. Likewise, Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal a number of septic systems may have been destroyed or compromised from the flooding. 

If during cleanup sewage or septage is encountered comingled with other flood debris, the waste does not need to be separated, Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal but can be disposed at a landfill mixed with other flood debris. Property owners and contractors should take precautions to prevent exposure when working in or around setpage and sewage. 

Care should be taken to minimize or eliminate contact with the contaminated materials and to not spread the septage or sewage. I) ElectronicWaste Items such as televisions, computers, DVD players Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal and other electronic devices can be taken to an electronics recycler or electronics recycling collection location if the material is not adversely contaminated by sewage, septage or other flood debris. 

Electronic waste that has been submerged Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal or damaged by water can still be recycled. The Department is issuing a temporary waiver of the electronic waste landfill ban (please see the department’s web page for the waiver). The waiver allows the disposal of only residential electronic waste at a solid waste landfill if the electronic waste has been contaminated by sewage, septage or deemed unrecyclable from flood debris contamination. 

Collection locations for electronics recycling are shown in the map titled "electronics recycling and collection locations” at the end of this document. The waiver does not include electronic waste from businesses. Electronic waste from businesses must be managed as a universal waste, Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal or as a hazardous waste, depending on the material characterization and is required to be managed as a hazardous waste. 

The term "white goods” is used to describe major household appliances such as washers, dryers, refrigerators, freezers, hot water heaters, Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal and other larger appliances. Because white goods are manufactured with a high percentage of metal, they are favorable for recycling. 

However, prior to recycling or disposal at a permitted landfill, Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal white goods containing refrigerants (chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), or hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)) must have those refrigerants properly recovered and appropriately managed by an EPA-certified technician with proper equipment. 

In addition, the facility accepting the white good for final disposal Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal or recycling must keep documentation verifying refrigerant recovery on site for three (3) years. Please contact the CFC Unit for the Owner’s Refrigerant Recovery Record form to meet this requirement. In Colorado, small appliance refrigerant recovery is regulated by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Air Pollution Control Division, Indoor Environment Program. 

A Chlorofluorocarbon HOTLINE is available to leave messages, report violations Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal or to request assistance for either the state or federal chlorofluorocarbon programs. The number for the state Chlorofluorocarbon HOTLINE is 303-692-3200. At the landfill, white goods staged for recycling should separate those containing refrigerants from those that never contained refrigerants. 

This should expedite the technicians’ removal of the refrigerant. On Site Disposal of Flood Debris: The Solid Waste Act and Regulations allow any person, other than governmental entities, Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal to dispose of their own waste on their own property provided the Department approves an engineering and operations plan that complies with the landfill.

Location restrictions and standards; 2) design requirements; and 3) operating criteria. The landfill design Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal and operating requirements vary depending on the site setting and type of material being disposed. We typically encounter three major types of disaster debris including: 1) inert (non- leachable and/or non-reactive) materials; 2) vegetation; and 3) non-inert (leachable and/or reactive) materials. 

All of these materials, if managed appropriately, should not cause an unsafe impact to people, wildlife, groundwater, surface water Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal or air. The inert materials are the easiest to manage because they are not mobile and will not present a significant risk to human health or the environment. Inert materials include earthen materials, hardened concrete, cured asphalt, masonry, some metals and other approved materials. 

Inert materials may be disposed of on property with the following provisions: 1) The disposal of inert waste on the property must be approved by the local government agency; 2) The inert waste may be disposed of in a basement if present Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal or in a hole in the ground (the base of the hole should be at least 5 feet above groundwater).

The materials need to be covered with at least two feet of clean fill; 4) The cover needs to be sloped to achieve positive drainage and Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal prevent ponding; 5) The cover should be revegetated to prevent erosion of the cover and surrounding materials; and 6) A notice of the fill location should be placed in the property deed. 

Non-inert materials may be disposed of on one’s own property, but will require an engineering design and operation plan that is submitted to the Department for review and Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal approval prior to implementation. Disposal of non-inert materials or materials that present a risk to human health (including asbestos) will also require a post-closure care plan, financial assurance and an environmental covenant. 

All on site disposal activities must be in accordance with local (city and county) rules and Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal ordinances. Temporary Stockpile Location for Flood Debris The department is working with local agencies that choose to establish temporary stockpile locations for flood debris. 

Certain waste and flood debris may not be accepted at temporary locations because of the high threat of vectors Fema Flood Zones And Debris Disposal and other nuisance conditions. Please check with your local health department representatives for locations and acceptable waste and flood debris.
