Sec. 23C-13-7. Information required before issuance of building or demolition permit.

(a) Submittal of Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan. Every applicant shall submit a properly completed “waste reduction and recycling plan” as provided by the city as a requirement of the building or demolition permit process. The plan shall be submitted as part of the building permit application packet. The waste reduction and recycling plan can cover multiple building permits for lots where construction activity is occurring at the same time by the same applicant. Separate waste reduction and recycling plans must be submitted for each batch of building permits requested. The applicant must provide information on the form that identifies project information and materials to be recycled and/or disposed of and facilities or service providers to be used. An administrative fee for each requested building or demolition permit and a deposit must be submitted with the waste reduction and recycling plan.
(b) Approval of Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this article, no building or demolition permit shall be issued for any project as defined in Section 23C-13-2 unless and until the compliance official has approved the waste reduction and recycling plan. The compliance official shall only approve a waste reduction and recycling plan if he or she determines that it contains all of the information set forth in subsection (a) of this section. If the compliance official determines that all of the above conditions have been met, he or she shall mark the waste reduction and recycling plan “approved,” return a copy of the plan to the applicant, and notify the community development department that it has been approved.
(c) Denial of Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan. If the compliance official determines that the waste reduction and recycling plan is incomplete he or she shall return it to the applicant marked “denied, further explanation required.” The applicant must then submit additional information before the waste reduction and recycling plan can be reviewed and the building or demolition permit issued. The applicant may resubmit the waste reduction and recycling plan within forty-five calendar days without forfeiting the administrative fee. In addition, the deposit will be retained until the completion of the construction project unless the applicant does not seek a building or demolition permit at which time the applicant will need to provide a written request for the refund of the deposit. If a waste reduction and recycling plan is submitted after forty-five calendar days, the original administrative fee is forfeited and an additional administrative fee (one hundred dollars per permit) will need to be submitted before the waste reduction and recycling plan can be reviewed and the building or demolition permit issued.
