C&D Best Practice Workshops at StopWaste
Construction & Demolition Recycling Working Group (January 2016)
On January 22, 2016, StopWaste hosted our Alameda County C&D Working Group to discuss recent updates and pending changes to the C&D industry. Topics included the new CALGreen 2016 code changes that require 65% C&D diversion statewide (as of January 1, 2017), updating local C&D ordinances, and efforts around regional coordination of C&D facility diversion rates.
Best Practices in Construction & Demolition Recycling (October 2015)
On October 22, 2015, StopWaste hosted a half-day workshop focused on best practices in meeting and implementing C&D recycling in Alameda County and the Bay Area. Presenters shared their experiences with achieving high diversion rates on building projects seeking to meet code, attain LEED certification, or targeting zero waste. Attendees included builders, contractors, facility operators, designers, and city & county officials.
