Update: Construction & Demolition Recycling
Nail C&D Recycling – save money and reduce your permitting headaches!
The CalGreen Code requires diversion of at least 65% of Construction & Demolition (C&D) generated during most “new construction” projects. In addition, the cities of Greenfield, Gonzales, Soledad, Salinas and King have adopted C&D Recycling ordinances. Proof of diversion is required for many County and city-issued permits.
