Construction & Demolition

Find Certified C&D and Reuse Facilities

CALGreen requires at least 65% percent diversion of waste generated during most construction, remodel, and demolitions projects. To increase your project’s diversion of waste from the landfill, consider deconstruction and reuse of materials first. Deconstruction is the best way to maintain the value of your C&D materials.

Zero Waste Marin recommends using a Certified Facility to ensure proper recycling of construction and demolition (C&D) debris materials including wood, metal, asphalt, brick, concrete, tile and other waste. Ever wonder what happens to a debris box full of C&D Materials? Read this article to find out more. To learn more about deconstruction, read this article.

Make C&D recycling for your project easy:

  • Consider reuse and/or deconstruct first
  • Take all C&D materials to a Zero Waste Marin Certified Facility
  • Save and submit documentation of recycling

Get Started

Every applicant must download and complete the Construction C&D Recycling Plan and turn in the first two pages to your jurisdiction’s building department before starting work.

Prior to Final Inspection

If using the Easy Method, submit the Post Construction Recycling Documentation Form (pages 3-4 of the C&D Recycling Plan) along with documentation of recycling.

If using the Advanced Method, submit the Post Construction Documentation Form (pages 3-4 of the Construction Waste Management Plan) along with documentation of recycling.

Treated Wood Waste Update

The alternative management standard (AMS), which allows waste haulers to accept treated wood waste (TWW) from residential and commercial customers, expired on December 31, 2020.

For this reason, beginning on January 1, 2021, waste haulers in the County of Marin cannot accept TWW at their facilities, in their debris boxes, and in the garbage, recycling, or composting bins, as treated wood is now considered hazardous waste.

The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is working on some variances that could allow some facilities to receive TWW. Until the variances are applied, DTSC suggests generators delay removing treated wood if possible or temporarily storing the waste before disposal.

Currently, the Marin Household Hazardous Waste facility cannot accept TWW from residential or commercial generators. Please do not bring TWW to the facility, and please do not instruct your customers to do so, either.

If you must remove any TWW, read the DTSC factsheet to avoid any penalties and get a disposal estimate from an approved hazardous waste hauler. To find more information related to the topic, visit the DTSC website.

Below is a list of companies that you can contact for transportation and disposal of TWW:
