Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris Program

The Town's Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris Program is managed by the Town’s Building Department. The Building Department can be reached at 650-851-6796.

Recycling is required for any residential or commercial new building or remodel project that exceeds a $10,000 valuation or generates more than 10 tons of debris. Such projects must recycle and/or salvage for reuse a minimum of 65% of the nonhazardous construction and demolition waste.

Applicants are required to submit Waste Management Plans (WMP) for applicable projects using the Green Halo software.

Using Green Halo, applicants will enter project information, weight tickets, and other documentation that will demonstrate recycling and salvaging compliance.

Projects are required to submit a C&D deposit prior to permit issuance. The deposit amount is calculated at $50 per ton of waste generated with a minimum of $1,000 and a maximum of $5,000.

The Building Department will verify the submitted Waste Management Plans and notify applicants of the required deposit amount. The deposit will be returned in full or in part to applicants once the Town confirms the waste diversion requirements were met.

Reporting requirements can be found in Woodside Municipal Code section 50.38.
