The City of El Segundo encourages homeowners and building professionals to incorporate green building design in construction activities through the use of "green" building materials. Green buildings are sited, designed, constructed and operated to enhance the wellbeing of occupants, and to minimize negative impacts to the community and the natural environment.

Any building or structure which is erected, constructed, enlarged, altered, repaired, moved, improved, removed, converted or demolished will require a building permit from the Building Safety Division. When in doubt, please give us a call to verify permit requirements: (310) 524-2380. Separate plumbing, electrical and mechanical permits may be required even if exempted from a building permit. Sign permits and grading permits may also be required for certain projects; zoning approval may also be required.

In June 1991, the City adopted its source Reduction and Recycling Element for the City General Plan in accordance with the Solid Waste Management Act of 1989 (AB 939). In accordance with AB 939, all communities in the State were required to reduce the solid waste stream going to landfills by 25 percent by 1995 and 50 percent by the year 2000. The City achieved a 84 percent waste diversion rate in 2006.
