Construction and Demolition Debris
On January 24, 2006, the Tulare County Board of Supervisors adopted the Construction and Demolition (C&D) Ordinance establishing regulations for the recycling and diversion of C&D debris within the unincorporated area of the County. This Ordinance becomes effective March 1, 2006 and assistsTulare County in reaching the 50% waste diversion mandate required by the California Integrated Waste Management Board.
Prior to the issuance of a permit, every Applicant for a building or demolition permit involving any Covered Project shall submit a properly completed C&D Debris Recycling and Reuse Plan to the Tulare County Resource Management Agency’s Permit Center. A C&D Debris Recycling and Reuse Final Compliance report will also be required within 30 days after project completion. It is important that you keep all your recycling and C&D landfill receipts as documentation will be required for your final compliance report. Drivers MUST advise the landfill gate attendant that they are disposing of C&D material to receive the required C&D debris tonnage receipt.
