Construction & Demolition                               

Stockton Municipal Code Sections 8.28.020 through 8.28.070 requires all permit applicants identify the debris that the project will generate and recycle accordingly.


As of January 1, 2017, at least 65% of construction and/or demolition debris must be diverted from landfills. A final disposal and recycling report must be submitted within 14 days of job completion.


Compliance with the City's Construction & Demolition ordinance is critical for Stockton to meet the State mandate requiring every city and county to divert 65% of its waste from landfills.  If Stockton fails to achieve this mandate, the State may issue fines of up to $10,000 per day for non-compliance.


The program details are outlined in the Construction and Demolition Brochure.
