How do I recycle Construction and Demolition materials?
- Utilize the services of Alameda County Industries (ACI), who, by contract, will collect C&D materials to be properly recycled, or;
- As an incidental part of 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;
- Self-haul in a fixed body vehicle directly to a facility that holds all applicable permits (approved by CVSan).
Please contact ACI at (510) 483-1400 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.
Construction & Demolition Requirements for projects within CVSan Boundaries
Effective April 1, 2010, the Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan) recognizes Section 470 "Construction and Demolition Debris Management" which was added to the Alameda County Municipal Code Chapter 1508, Building Code on June 30, 2009. Please visit the Alameda County Public Works Agency website for more information. CVSan has an exclusive franchise agreement for municipal solid waste collection services including C&D debris services.
Expired Treated Wood Waste (TWW) Regulations
Effective August 31, 2021, the State reinstated regulations that authorize TWW to be handled under Alternative Management Standards (AMS), instead of as a hazardous waste. ACI will be able to collect and transport TWW from CVSan customers. TWW can be disposed of as garbage. All TTW variances issued by the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) since March 2021 are inoperative, as they are no longer necessary and have been replaced by the AMS.
For updates and additional information on treated wood waste, visit the DTSC website.
