Mixed Construction & Demolition Debris Recycling Facilities

Mixed construction or demolition debris contain more than one major material type (wood, metal, concrete, sheetrock, etc) mixed together. For purposes of compliance with the City of San Ramon's Construction and Demolition Debris Recycling Ordinance, only the following facilities are currently approved for processing of mixed construction or demolition debris:

The City will consider requests to approve additional mixed construction/demolition debris recycling facilities if they can demonstrate a consistent, average recovery rate of 50% or more. You must be able to demonstrate that your materials were taken to the C&D recycling area of a facility and not the disposal area.

Source Separated Construction & Demolition Debris Re-use & Recycling Facilities

Source separated refers to materials that are separated at the jobsite into major categories (wood, metal, concrete, sheetrock, etc.). There are many local re-use and recycling facilities that can accept source separated construction/demolition materials. The City will only verify the recovery at these facilities on an as-needed basis.

The Contra Costa Builder's Guide to Reuse and Recycling is a directory that was developed to help Bay Area builders, contractors, and  residents reuse and recycle construction and demolition materials. It is also available in hard copy at the Planning Department permit counter.

The following web sites contain up-to-date searchable databases of recycling facilities.
