The C&D Debris Deposit Ordinance requires that the majority of construction, demolition and remodeling projects requiring building, combination and demolition permits divert C&D debris from landfill disposal. For the permit you are applying for, the following needs to be completed:
Submit a completed Waste Management Form
Pay a refundable C&D Debris Recycling Deposit
Submit all trash and recycling weight receipts, and documentation within 180 days from final inspection of the project to request the deposit
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. For periodic program updates, email email@example.com to sign up for the City's C&D recycling email list.
