Recycling Ordinance:

The city's C&D ordinance applies to all C&D projects over 10,000 square feet in gross floor area. Applicants of covered projects are required to divert the maximum feasible amount of C&D debris, but no less than 50 percent of the C&D waste generated. Persons seeking a C&D permit must submit quantity projections for C&D debris generated by the project and a $250 deposit. The city will return the deposit when the applicant satisfactorily demonstrates compliance with the diversion requirements. The city requires all developers, C&D contractors, and any person hauling C&D debris from a C&D project to report quantities diverted and disposed upon completion of the project. Prior to issuance of a certificate of occupancy for new construction projects, the city must receive satisfactory C&D debris diversion reports from the permittee. The city has semi-exclusive franchise agreements with haulers for C&D materials that require the haulers to deliver recyclables to one or more recyclable processing facilities and C&D debris to one or more C&D debris processing facilities. Franchise contractors will not transport and deliver any recyclables or C&D debris to any solid waste disposal facility for disposal or use as ADC. Franchise contractors are required to report in quarterly reports and annual reports to the city the tons of recyclable and C&D debris that were diverted by recyclable processing facilities and C&D debris processing facilities. For more information on the city's C&D ordinance, see Title 8, Chapter 8.17c of the city's municipal code, or the see the city's semi-exclusive franchise agreement.
