  • Amendment to the Notice of Treatment for the Asian Citrus Psyllid

    Between December 6, 2018 and January 11, 2019, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) confirmed the presence of Asian citrus psyllids (ACP), Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, a harmful exotic pest in the city of Soledad in Monterey County. This detection indicates that a breeding population exists in the area. The devastating citrus disease Huanglongbing (HLB) is spread by the feeding action of ACP. The ACP infestation is sufficiently isolated and localized to be amendable to the CDFA's ACP treatment work plan. A Program Environmental Impact Report (PIER) has been certified which analyzes the ACP treatment program in accordance with Public Resources Code, Sections 21000 et seq. The PEIR is available at www.cdfa.ca.gov/plant/peir. The treatment activities described are consistent with the PEIR.

What is a HHW (Household hazardous waste)?

Products, such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides can contain hazardous ingredients and require special care when you dispose of them. Often they are leftover household products that can catch fire, react, or explode under certain circumstances, or that are corrosive or toxic.
