Construction & Demolition (C&D) Recycling
On July 1, 2008, the Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris Deposit Ordinance took effect. The ordinance requires that the majority of construction, demolition and remodeling projects requiring building, combination and demolition permits pay a refundable C&D Debris Recycling Deposit and divert their debris by recycling, reusing or donating usable materials. The ordinance is designed to keep C&D materials out of local landfills and ensure they get recycled.
New Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris Diversion Requirement
For projects with permits issued on or after July 1, 2016, the diversion requirement will increase to 65 percent by weight of the total C&D debris generated by the project. The diversion requirement for projects with permits issued through June 30, 2016 will remain at 50 percent.
