What are the requirements?

The City's Ordinance requires contractors to recycle 100% of all asphalt/concrete and 50% of all other Construction and Demolition (C&D) debris from construction and demolition projects valued at $100,000 or greater at the time the building permit is issued.

As of January 1, 2017, the California Green Building Standards Code requires a C&D waste management plan and 65% waste diversion of non-hazardous materials for all new construction, all commercial renovations and most residential additions/alterations. For more information visit the California Building Standards Commission website.
