Construction & Demolition Recycling

Construction & Demolition (C&D) Recycling Requirements in Pleasant Hill

The City of Pleasant Hill’s Construction and Demolition Ordinance 949, passed October4, 2021 requires that 65% of project waste materials be diverted from landfills. A construction, demolition or renovation project must comply with the Ordinance if the project is expected to cost $50,000 or more. In order to comply, each permit applicant for building, demolition, or encroachment must submit a Waste Management Plan (WMP). 

The WMP includes a Waste Assessment to identify the materials that you estimate will be recycled, salvaged or landfilled. And upon the completion of the project, a report is required to indicate the material types and quantities recycled, salvaged or disposed from the project site.  The City of Pleasant Hill requires applicants to submit their WMP using Green Halo systems. Green Halo is a web-based service where you can establish, monitor and document your waste management plan and compliance online.
