Construction Waste

The collection and disposal of construction, demolition and cleanup debris is regulated by the City. Projects that fail to follow requirements for solid waste and recycling collection may be subject to penalties and fees.

Debris Box and Hauling Requirements for Demolition and Construction Projects

All solid waste from residential and nonresidential construction, demolition, remodeling or cleanup projects must be collected and disposed of in containers provided by the City's franchised hauler, Specialty Solid Waste & Recycling. Certain activities are exempt from this requirement. Violators of this requirement are subject to citation, fines and impoundment of unauthorized collection containers.

To order a debris box or other collection services

  • Call the City's Utilities Division at 408-730-7400.
  • For locations without an active City water or sewer account, call Specialty at 408-565-9900.
