Voter-led “Waste No More” ordinance

Construction and Demolition Debris Recycling and Reuse Plan 

Ballot Initiative 306, known as Waste No More, was approved by voters in November 2022. This ordinance requires nearly all construction and demolition projects to separate and recycle, at a minimum, all readily recyclable concrete, asphalt, clean wood, scrap metal, and corrugated cardboard. The ordinance also requires these projects to submit a recycling and reuse plan to the city to confirm compliance with the ordinance prior to obtaining a construction or demolition permit.

The following projects are not required to submit a recycling and reuse plan:

  • Projects requiring only mechanical, electrical, HVAC, and/or plumbing permits


Starting June 1, 2023, all projects will need to submit a form and supporting documentation before your demolition or commercial/residential construction permit can be issued. View submittal requirements >>
