Building materials are a significant source of landfill deposits, and therefore present a great opportunity for recycling. Much of the materials used in construction can be reused or recycled. The City of Agoura Hills requires certain types of construction and demolition of structures in the City to comply with the City’s Construction & Demolition Debris Recycling Program.


Projects that meet the following criteria are required to complete the program:

All construction and demolition projects that must be approved by the City Planning Commission, AND which meet any of the following thresholds:

1) All Commercial additional or alterations 
2) All Residential additions or alterations
3) All Demolition of any structure requiring a permit
4) All New Construction (pursuant to the Green Building Code)

Applicants must complete a Pre-Construction Waste Reduction/Recycling Plan (WRRP) to demonstrate how materials will be recycled. Upon completion of work, the applicant must submit a Post Construction Waste Reduction/Recycling Summary Report, indicating whether the goals for recycling and reuse were met.  The minimum diversion requirement is 65%.

The City Planning and Community Development Department implements this Program. Please contact the case planner assigned to your project for further questions. For general information about the Program, please contact Louis Celaya, Deputy City Manager, at (818) 597-7314.  If you need technical assistance in completing the application and report forms, please contact the City’s Solid Waste Coordinator at (805) 495-7521.
