Recycling Ordinance:

The city's C&D ordinance applies to all construction, demolition, and renovation projects within the city with a total cost, or projected cost, of $50,000 or greater. Permit applicants must submit a WMP demonstrating how they will divert at least 75 percent of the waste generated by the project. Applicants for building or demolition permits involving the removal of all or part of an existing structure shall consider deconstruction to the maximum extent feasible, and shall make the materials generated available for salvage. Prior to completion of any covered project, the applicant shall submit to the WMP compliance official documentation that the diversion requirements have been met. If the applicant fails to submit documentation or fails to meet the diversion requirement, or fails to make a good faith effort to meet the requirement, the building official shall not release the building permit. For more information, see Title V, Chapter 50, Sections 50.60 - 50.99 of the city's municipal code.
