Integrated Waste Management Home. To meet the requirements of this law, as well as the requirements of two Ventura County ordinances, the Integrated Waste Management Division IWMD reviews proposed discretionary projects to ensure:. For more information about the role and responsibilities of the Integrated Waste Management Division, please click on the Department Link at the top of the page. There is no charge for this service. At the conclusion of construction or demolition, applicants must submit a final report Form C to the IWMD for approval.
IWMD staff will help applicants prepare their final reports. Ventura County Greenwaste Processing Facilities This list provides the names and locations of all permitted greenwaste processing facilities in Ventura County. Ventura County Commercial Haulers This list provides permit applicants with the names of commercial haulers with approved agreements with the County which allow them to haul commercial solid waste and recyclables within unincorporated areas of Ventura County.
The County of Ventura's Space Allocation Guidelines provides permit applicants with the basic information they need to determine the size of the trash and recyclables enclosure their commercial project requires.
The following ordinances were approved by the Board of Supervisors to assist the County of Ventura in its efforts to meet the requirements of AB No, IWMD staff assists applicants on a "drop-in" basis at the public counter. IWMD staff will also assist applicants over the phone if they are unable to come to the Government Center to fill out their required recycling forms. All projects requiring a building permit are referred to the IWMD for the next step in the permitting process.
Assembly Bill requires all cities and counties in the State to divert landfill-bound solid waste through waste reduction, reuse, recycling, or composting. Construction debris includes such materials as drywall, wood, metal, concrete, asphalt, soil, and greenwaste. Ventura County has numerous facilities that recycle or reuse construction debris and greenwaste which provide applicants with receipts for the IWMD's "Form C — Recycling Report.

Responsible management of waste is an essential aspect of sustainable building. In this context, managing waste means eliminating waste where possible; minimizing waste where feasible; and reusing materials which might otherwise become waste. Solid waste management practices have identified the reduction, recycling, and reuse of wastes as essential for sustainable management of resources. Most construction and demolition waste currently generated in the U. In some areas all or part of construction and demolition waste stream is unlawfully deposited on land, or in natural drainages including water, contrary to regulations to protect human health, commerce and the environment. Businesses and citizens of the U.
This requirement applies to demolition projects and most new construction, as well as the majority of building additions or alterations see CalGreen Project Type Guide PDF for more details. Completed PDF forms should be submitted electronically to the assigned staff person via e-mail. If you do not know the email of the plan checker assigned to your project, please call the APC Front Desk at , tell them your permit number, and ask for the email of the plan checker assigned to your project..

Material flows in the construction sector are governed by a complex socio-technical system in which awarding authorities decide in interaction with other actors on the use of construction materials. This paper presents an agent-based model of the Swiss recycled construction material market based on empirical data derived from the agent operationalization approach. It elaborates on how recycling of construction materials can be enhanced by analysing key factors affecting the demand for recycled construction materials and developing scenarios towards a sustainable construction waste management. Doing so it demonstrates how detailed empirical agent decision data were incrementally included in the ABM model. Raising construction actors' awareness of recycled materials as a decision option, in combination with small price incentives was most effective for enhancing the use of recycled materials.
For this reason, construction industries need to find suitable methods to manage construction and demolition materials that generate waste during construction activities. Construction and demolition materials consist of debris that is generated during construction, renovation, and demolition of buildings, roads, and bridges. Heavy and bulky materials like the following are some examples of construction and demolition materials:. You can help divert construction and demolition materials from disposal by practicing source reduction, salvaging, recycling, and reusing existing materials. You can also buy used and recycled products and materials.
There is an increasing need to reduce construction waste and to promote more green and sustainable construction. Refurbishing existing buildings and re-using existing construction materials may provide the right answer to reduce such waste and minimise its impact on the environment. According to Defra statistics, When a building starts showing serious structural defects or reaches its original design life, a well-informed decision is required on whether to refurbish, reuse or demolish such building. Unfortunately, most developers go for a complete demolishing simply because it is an easy option. There is a great potential for refurbishment across the world.
Beginning from a screening of the current percentage of reuse and recycling, type of recycling types of waste and destinations and incentive policies in Member States of European Union, the research aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the Directive and possible ways of improvement through a Life Cycle based approach. In this paper the incentive policies and some critical issues regarding current regulations are analysed. Further ways to improve legislation are proposed as well as guidelines, which would have an effect on a local level and are aimed at making the recycling of CDW management more effective and sustainable through Life Cycle Management. Construction and demolition waste is receiving more attention recently following new circular economy policies [ 1 , 2 ]. Action plans primarily move towards reduction of waste by recycling, promoting the by-products exchange among companies and supporting digital technology platforms in order to stimulate business opportunities. It establishes the waste hierarchy, defines the meaning of by-product and the consequent cessation of waste classification.
Designing a building to support adaptation, disassembly and reuse can reduce waste and extend its useful life, providing economic and environmental benefits for builders, owners, and occupants, and the communities. This practice can also avoid building removal altogether, and allows materials to be easily, cost-effectively and rapidly taken apart and directed for further reuse.
