What is construction/demolition (C&D) waste?

Construction or demolition waste is non-hazardous building material or debris such as: asphalt, concrete, brick, drywall, fencing, metal, packing materials, pallets, pipe or wood resulting from construction, remodeling, repair or demolition of a property.

The County operates several Disposal Facilities where C&D may be disposed or recycled. Other recycling facilities in Kern County, that accept C&D, are listed in the Kern County Recycling Guide.

There are Disposal Fees associated with the disposal or recycling of C&D from both residential and commercial sources. Discounts may be available for source separated materials. Discounts will be determined at the gate following an inspection of the load. Check out the Disposal Sites link for site specific fees schedules.
