Construction & Demolition Haulers

On May 5, 2021 the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved updates to the County’s Solid Waste Ordinance. These updates require haulers who collect construction and demolition (C&D) materials to obtain a franchise agreement.

Only approved C&D collectors that hold a valid Non-Exclusive Franchise Agreement (NEFA) are permitted to collect and transport C&D debris generated in the unincorporated areas of the county. This list will be updated as additional C&D collectors are approved through the County’s non-exclusive franchise hauler agreement process. 

The County will accept Non-Exclusive Franchise Agreement (NEFA) applications for C&D collectors through December 31, 2021. Commencing in 2022, the County will accept NEFA applications for C&D collectors annually from January 1 through January 30. A NEFA for C&D collectors shall be issued for an initial term of 3 years, and may be extended, at the County’s option, in one or more increments of 3 years.  

C&D Hauler requirements include but are not limited to:

  1. Signing Letters of Agreements with C&D project permittees to provide hauling and reporting services upon request.
  2. Delivering C&D material to approved C&D processing facilities. 
  3. Maintaining records to demonstrate C&D recycling reuse, salvage, or disposal generated per site and facility where materials were delivered.
  4. Working with C&D project permittees to create and/or submit Debris Management Reports to the County no later than 180 days after the County issues a passed final inspection notice (or a certificate of occupancy).
  5. Meeting requirements specified in County Code Section 68.514 (c)&(f), 68.516, 68.518.
  6. Entering into a Non-Exclusive Franchise Agreement (NEFA) with the County for C&D collection services and complying with the C&D requirements of the NEFA.

The completed application and supplemental forms must be submitted to CDRecycling@sdcounty.ca.gov.
