How do I recycle Construction and Demolition materials? 

(1) Utilize the services of Waste Management of Alameda County, who, by contract, will take C&D materials to be properly recycled, or;

(2) As an incidental part of a total construction, remodeling, or demolition service, the licensed contractor may  recycle the materials at Davis Street Transfer Station or an alternate designated site for recycling (approved by CVSan), or;

(3) Self haul in a fixed body vehicle directly to a facility that holds all applicable permits (approved by CVSan).

Please contact WMAC at 510-613-8700 to request a C&D debris box.  Visit the Rates page for a listing of rates. Please note that there is a Collection Fee, and a Disposal Fee charged per ton based on actual disposal costs plus an administrative fee.

Bagster BagOr, purchase a Bagster Bag, an alternative to a debris box that holds 3 cubic yards of material (up to 3,300 pounds).  Materials are sorted and recycled.  Bags are approximately $30.00 and may be purchased at a local retailer.  An additional Collection and Recycling/Disposal Fee is paid to Waste Management upon scheduling your pick-up.  Click here to find the Bagster Bag Collection Fee in your area.
