Construction & Demolition Recycling

C&D Recycling Guidelines | Facility Fact Sheet

Davis Street is the first and currently the only 3rd party certified mixed C&D debris recycling facility in Alameda County, with diversion rates recognized by San Francisco, Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, and the U.S. Green Building Council LEED™ rating system.

It provides recycling documentation via Green Halo and a WM-proprietary tracking program, which satisfies local permitting requirements as well as LEED™ (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) and GreenPoint Rated projects.

The most recent audit by the Recycling Certification Institute certified the facility is diverting 75 percent of C&D materials for recycling or reuse. These quarterly audits meet the requirements for an additional pilot credit in LEED v4™ and also ensure accurate and transparent recovery reporting to local municipalities.

Recycling Tips

Using compost and mulch recycled from curbside organics and construction wood can help you save water and avoid the use of chemical fertilizers and herbicides.
