Construction and Demolition Debris Recycling
The City of Napa has adopted a construction and demolition (C&D) debris recycling ordinance in an effort to redirect these materials away from landfill. The ordinance requires that 100% of identified materials be source-separated on-site and recycled. In addition, for projects projected to exceed $100,000 or 5,000 square feet (‘covered projects’), the project must achieve an overall salvage or recycle rate of 50% of all project debris generated. A Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan (WRRP) must be submitted and approved before a building or demolition permit can be issued, and the applicant must demonstrate compliance with the City's requirements at the end of the project by submitting corresponding documentation such as weight tags from appropriate recycling facilities.
