Public Works is proposing to revise the County's Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris Recycling and Reuse Ordinance. The update will make the County ordinance consistent with the recycling requirements in the latest California Green Building Standards (CalGreen Code) and help achieve the waste diversion targets in the County's Roadmap to a Sustainable Waste Management Future.
The proposed revisions will also help the County better address illegal dumping of soil and C&D debris in the unincorporated County areas and allow the disposal of soil at certain gravel pits and quarries to facilitate future development of those sites.
Public Works is soliciting feedback on the proposed revisions. Public Works hosted two online stakeholder workshops in November 2020 and two additional online stakeholder workshops in June 2021 to get feedback from the public and industry professionals. Two final stakeholder workshops are scheduled for January 2022 and will include more detail in the proposed revisions. For more details, please click the link below for the date you wish to attend. Both workshops will cover the same information.
