About the Green Building in Alameda County Program
Debris from construction and demolition projects comprises over 20% of the materials disposed in Alameda County landfills.

The program serves three target markets: Alameda County Waste Management Authority’s seventeen member agencies; design and building industry professionals; and residents of Alameda County.
The key components of the Green Building Program are:
- Standards and Guidelines
