Beginning January 1, 2017, all C&D projects in the City of Azusa must recycle or reuse a minimum of 65% of its construction wastes. All covered projects are required to submit a Waste Management Plan and document diversion and disposal for approval by the Building and Safety Department prior to construction or demolition permit issuance. Contractor must provide documentation to demonstrate compliance with the Waste Management Plan after completion of construction or demolition and/or prior to final permit inspection.
Methods of Compliance:
1) Contractor shall submit a Waste Management Plan to Building and Safety Department.
2) Utilize Athens Services, the City’s franchised hauler. Using the franchised hauler assures compliance with 65% diversion requirement. Self-haul by Contractor is subject to review and approval of Waste Management Plan.
Recycling by Occupants:
Where 5 or more multifamily dwelling units are constructed on a building site, provide readily accessible area(s) that serves all buildings on the site and is identified for the depositing, storage and collection of non-hazardous materials for recycling, including (at a minimum) paper, corrugated cardboard, glass, plastics, organic waste, and metals, or meet a lawfully enacted local recycling ordinance, if more restrictive.
