Construction & Demolition

Waste Recycling Required

The City of Dublin requires all construction and demolition (C&D) projects recycle at least 65% of the waste for remodels or tenant improvements, and 75% of the waste for new construction generated on a job site, excluding asphalt and concrete debris, of which 100% must be recycled. The City's municipal code has specific procedures for complying with these requirements as contained in the instructions and forms listed below.

Approved Construction & Demolition Debris Hauler

The City of Dublin has entered into an exclusive solid waste franchise agreement with Amador Valley Industries (AVI) for the removal of all solid waste in the City. Using any company other than AVI is a violation of City ordinance. 

Self-hauling to another facility is permitted under the Building & Safety Division; for information on a Waste Management Plan specific to a Building Permit, please call the Building & Safety Division for addition requirements and clarification at 925-833-6620. 

Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) Building Demolition Ordinance

The San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board requires that local agencies, including Dublin, develop a screening program to keep polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) from building materials out of the storm drain system during the building demolition process. To meet these requirements, on June 4, 2019, Dublin City Council approved an addition to the Dublin Municipal Code, adding Chapter 7.29 to Manage Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) during the building demolition process. Starting July 1, 2019, all applicants proposing to demolish a building must complete a PCBs Screening Assessment Form and submit it with the Building Demolition permit application. For more information visit the PCBs Demolition Ordinance webpage or contact the Environmental Services Division at 925-833-6630 for more information.
