Construction and demolition waste is generated by new construction activities, expansion of existing structures, and/or demolition of existing structures.
Landfill space is an important and expensive resource that can be conserved by recycling construction and demolition (C&D) materials. C&D recycling saves landfill space and often saves you money!
In an effort to divert C&D debris generated at local projects, the City encourages applicants for demolition and building permits to divert at least 65% of the waste generated on site.
The debris may be brought to a recycling or salvage facility, reused on site, or donated to others.
