CalGreen LogoConstruction and demolition (C&D) activity accounts for nearly 30% of all the waste generated in California. The California Green Building Code, or CALGreen, requires all permitted residential and non-residential construction, demolition and additions/alterations projects to recycle or salvage a minimum 50% of nonhazardous construction materials from the project.
MRWMD Construction and Demo Recycling BrochureFor more information on C&D recycling, and how to comply with C&D diversion requirements of the CALGreen on the Monterey Peninsula, please see Construction and Demolition Recycling by the Monterey Regional Waste Management District (MRWMD). You can also review a PDF copy of their brochure.
The City does not require that contractors use the MRWMD. Here are other options for disposal. We recommend you call the facility first to ensure that the waste type you are bringing will be accepted. You can also find more information about each on the CalRecycle website.
