Requirements

All building projects must meet certain requirements to maximize reuse and recycling of debris generated by construction and demolition activities. 

The following requirements are the responsibility of the general contractor or property owner

Requirements - All building projects must meet the requirements as indicated below in order to maximize reuse and recycling of debris generated by construction and demolition activities. Stand-alone permits for fences, decks, or trade permits such as electrical, mechanical, plumbing or signs are not required to meet these requirements.

  • Provide a trash receptacle on the job site for disposal of food waste (e.g., lunch waste) to prevent contamination of recyclables.
  • Clearly label all recycling containers on the job site regarding acceptable materials.
  • A Construction and Demolition Debris Management Form must be completed and returned within one week of permit application for all building projects valued at $50,000 or more (including both demolition and construction phases).  Completing and returning this form is optional for projects valued at less than $50,000.

Compliance - Failure to comply with these requirements is considered an infraction and subject to an assessment (up to $500 for first violation – City Code 17.102.090).
