Why it is Important
Up to 21% of waste in landfills comes from construction and demolition activity. The City of Emeryville’s ordinance addresses this by requiring that contractors of all demolition projects and construction projects with a valuation of over $50,000 or over 1,000 square feet recycle or reuse at least 50% of all debris generated by a project. For all requirements and details, refer to the Guide at the link below.
