    C&D recycling ordinances

    I am curious what other cities are doing as far as construction and demolition recycling ordinances in states that do not require it by law. What kind of ordinances are viable for a population of nearly 200,000 that will not put economic hardship on construction companies but will increase the amount of debris being recycled? Discussion and examples are welcome.

    In California we are mandated by the former Integrated Waste Management Board (now abolished) to divert 50% of construction debris from landfills. In the cities I have work at, we screen projects depending on project value (>$50k) and size (>5000sf), making the applicant complete a form and collecting a deposit (usually $1500), which is returned after project completion and submitting proof that the waste was taken to an authorized facility.
