Construction Waste Management Plan–Public Works

The Department of Public Works, Solid Waste Management Division reviews and approves all new construction projects required to submit a Construction and Demolition Solid Waste Management Plan (waste management plan). Effective January 1, 2017, the California Green Building Standards Code requires all newly constructed buildings, including low-rise residential and most non-residential commercial projects, to develop a waste management plan and divert a minimum of 65% of the construction waste. The waste management plan consists of two parts that are incorporated into the Conditions of Approval for County Planning and Building & Safety. Part I requires projects to estimate the amount of tonnage to be disposed and diverted during construction. Part II requires projects to show what tonnage was actually diverted and disposed of. Disposal/diversion receipts or certifications are required as a part of that summary.
