Construction and Demolition Recycling Program

The City of San Juan Capistrano has established a Construction and Demolition (C&D) Waste Recycling Program per ordinance No. 887 and Resolutions No. 03-11-04-04 and 03-11-04-05 to help in diverting C&D waste from landfills and also to comply with mandates of the California Integrated Wasted Management Board (CIWMB).  The City’s diversion requirement is 50%, which means that certain projects are required to divert 50% of the total C&D waste tonnage at a project site from landfills.

The City has a franchise agreement for solid waste handling and recycling with CR &R.  CR &R provides construction and demolition dumpster services in San Juan Capistrano.  You can reach them at 877-728-0446, ask for Customer Service, or visit the website.

Tips to Manage C&D Material at the Job Site:

  • Determine recycling, salvage, reuse and disposal options before the job begins.

  • Consider deconstruction instead of mechanical demolition.

  • Reuse materials such as fixtures and doors.

  • Donate materials that can be reused to charities and nonprofit agencies.

  • Place advertisements in local newspapers announcing salvageable and reusable materials for sale or donation.

  • Choose refuse haulers based on their responsiveness to your recycling plan.

  • Choose a recycling facility based on its fees and geographic proximity to your job site.

  • Educate contractors regarding your waste management plan.

  • Clearly identify recycling areas with large signs.

  • Place recycling bins in areas that will minimize misuse or contamination by employees and the public.
