Construction & Demolition Debris Recycling

Construction & Demolition Recycling Ordinance

To encourage construction and demolition recycling, the Town of Danville has adopted a construction and demolition recycling ordinance. The ordinance requires projects within the Town, where the total construction costs are projected to be greater than, or equal to $50,000, or which involve the construction, or renovation of 1,000 square feet or more, including roofing projects or demolition-only projects (greater than or equal to 300 square feet) to divert 65% of their job debris from the landfill. The ordinance requires submittal of:

  1. A Waste Management Plan (WMP) as part of the application submittal requirements for a building, grading, demolition or similar permit
  2. Plan compliance documentation must be submitted once the project is completed.

Mandatory Use of Certified Facilities 

In order to be counted toward the project’s 65% diversion requirement, all construction and demolition waste must be taken to a Certified Construction and Demolition Recovery Facility. The Central Contra Costa Solid Waste Authority (CCSWA) maintains the list of certified facilities.
