a major urban center ever. The infrastructure

Restoring the area could take years.
The U.S. Geologic Service predicts
a similar event on America’s West
Coast in the next 30 years. Hear

KEN PRUE - RECYCLING PROGRAM MANAGER, CITY OF SAN DIEGO
“The City of San Diego’s Construction & Demolition Debris Ordinance – What’s it all about?”
The City of San Diego’s Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris Deposit Ordinance is designed to keep C&D materials out of our local landfills and ensure they get recycled. The ordinance requires that the majority of construction, demolition and remodeling projects requiring building, combination and demolition permits, pay a refundable C&D Debris Recycling Deposit and divert at least 50% of their debris by recycling, reusing or donating usable materials. This presentation will give a background on C&D material recycling and reuse in San Diego, the C&D Ordinance and the excellent results achieved in the first four years of implementation.
Ken Prue oversees the planning, development, and implementation of citywide efforts to achieve State mandated waste diversion goals and long-term solid waste management needs. Ken has been with the City of San Diego’s recycling program for 13 years.
