Construction and Demolition Debris

  • Deconstruction requirements for houses and duplexes

  • Recycle

  • Reduce

The Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) promotes responsible management of debris generated by construction and demolition (C&D) activities. Reducing, reusing and recycling C&D debris keeps valuable resources out of the landfill and helps achieve Portland’s waste recovery and reduction goals. BPS supports these efforts through education, assistance and administration of C&D recycling requirements.
