Construction & Demolition Ordinance Information & Compliance Materials

The City's Construction and Demolition (C&D) Ordinance became effective September 18, 2006. This ordinance was established in order to help the City comply with AB939 (signed into California state law in 1989) which requires local governments to divert 50% of materials sent to the landfill by the year 2000, and each successive year thereafter. Monetary fines up to $10,000 per day may be issued by the state for non-compliance.
