Recycling Ordinance:

The City of Redondo Beach (City) adopted a recycling program for construction and demolition wastes in December 2004. The purpose of the program is to provide an incentive to encourage the diversion (recycling or reuse) of specific materials that represent a large percentage of the City's overall waste stream, and to comply with the State mandate.

  • Any contractor, builder, demolition hauler, and or resident that applies for a demolition permit is required to submit a Waste Management Plan (WMP) and a performance deposit.
  • No more than 25% of the 50% diversion rates can be achieved through the recycling or reuse of inert materials.
  • The deposit is fully refundable if at least 50% of all wastes generated during the demolition are diverted from landfills, and appropriate documentation is provided to the City.
  • Construction or building permitees will be required to submit a recycling report after construction is completed.
  • Please note that submittal and approval of an accurate and complete WMP is a precondition to issuance of any demolition permit. Submit the completed WMP to the Public Works Department with your completed demolition permit application. This booklet will guide you through this process, and explain the WMP, the mechanism for refund, and the documentation required. There are four easy steps to follow to assure compliance with the program, and may ultimately save you money through reduced waste disposal costs.
  • Inert Materials: Asphalt, Brick, Concrete, Dirt, Glass, Rock.
  • Non-Inert Materials: Cardboard, Dry Wall, Green Waste, Metals, Wood.
