Construction & Demolition Recycling

CITYWIDE CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION (C and D) WASTE RECYCLING ORDINANCE 

On March 5, 2010, the Los Angeles City Council approved Council File 09-3029 pertaining to a Citywide Construction and Demolition (C and D) Waste Recycling Ordinance that requires ALL mixed C and D waste generated within city limits be taken to City certified C and D waste processors. LA Sanitation (LASAN) is responsible for the C and D waste recycling policy. 

 

All haulers and contractors responsible for handling C and D waste must obtain a Private Waste Hauler Permit from LASAN prior to collecting, hauling and transporting C and D waste, and C and D waste can only be taken to City certified C and D processing facilities.

Non-compliance penalties of up to $5,000 will be assessed for every load of C and D waste not taken to City certified processors. There are no longer any C and D rebates.

 

The Department of Building and Safety will aid in facilitating implementation of this ordinance; Building and Safety Building Permit applications will require contractors to either identify the Permitted Private Solid Waste Hauler handling C and D waste from their City project or provide the contractor's own Private Solid Waste Hauler Permit should the contractor choose to self-haul C and D waste.

 

For more information about this ordinance, please contact LASAN at the address and phone number provided at the bottom of this page under Contact Information.
