The City of Dana Point is very serious about recycling construction and demolition waste. The City’s Construction and Demolition Waste Ordinance (No.03-17) requires contractors and other construction related persons to obtain a permit and haul at least 75% of their construction waste to a recycling facility certified by the City. The City of Dana Point requires a construction and demolition deposit in the amount of $1.00 per sq. foot/per floor of the work area of the project in order to encourage compliance with the ordinance.
Please note that universal waste (such as batteries, e-waste, lamps, cathode ray tubes/glass and aerosol cans) from non-residential additions of 1,000ft2 or greater and/or building alterations with a permit valuation of $200,000 or above require verification that materials are disposed of properly and diverted from landfills (CALGreen Section 301.3). In order to comply with this requirement, a listing of universal waste materials that will be diverted from the landfill from applicable projects should be identified, and disposal location identified, within the C&D Waste Plan.
CR&R hauls 100% of all construction waste to a Materials Recycling Facility where the recyclable items are removed for processing. Please call CR&R at (877) 728-0446 to order a construction and demolition waste bin for your construction project. For more information about the Construction and Demolition Ordinance and how to comply please see below.
Please note that effective September 21, 2019, the Prima Materials Recycle Facility ( Prima MRF) located within the Prima Landfill property has ceased operations. When disposing of construction and demolition waste, please refer to the links below for facilities that accept C&D waste. Please note that if C&D waste is disposed of within the Prima Landfill (and not a recycling facility), the C&D deposit for your project may be forfeited if the 75% diversion requirement is not met.
Please reference the City's C&D Deposit Program brochure linked above.
