Franchise Agreement Required to Haul C&D Debris

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. Learn more here.
