Construction and Demolition

Construction and Demolition (C&D) refuse should be sent to an approved recycling facility. All C&D projects bound by the requirements of a Waste Management Plan (WMP) must use the approved haulers and/or recycling facilities chosen in the WMP.

Construction material such as concrete, bricks, drywall, lumber, etc., must be removed by the contractor or you may rent temporary construction containers by authorized private haulers. Please refer to list of approved haulers.

DIRT, BRICKS, BLOCKS AND CONCRETE:  Refuse produced by a construction contractor will not be collected. Items such as dirt, brick, block, and concrete should not be mixed with your regular refuse. This is a special collection requiring a special truck other than the normal refuse collection truck. The fee-based bulky waste collection service is available for items excluded from routine collections, such as furniture, moving debris, old appliances, etc. These items are collected from city residents only. Requests for special collections should be made by Tuesday for collection that week by calling (310) 458-2223. Please be sure to let us know what type of material you have when you call.
