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.
In 2000 and 2001, the Alameda County Waste Management Authority (ACWMA) gathered weight data on waste disposed from over 1,500 businesses comprising four commercial waste collection routes in Oakland and Hayward. In addition, the ACWMA commissioned a waste characterization study that included analysis of the composition of waste from 260 of the businesses for which weight information was collected. This report provides a summary of the study, reports on our statistical analysis of the data, and draws conclusions regarding the data’s usefulness and applicability for diversion program planning.Read More
