When a general contractor requests a Final Building Inspection for an Affected Project, the contractor must report how much construction debris was landfilled, reused or recycled. Contractors failing to report are subject to a Class C misdemeanor.
Waivers and Penalties
A general contractor who is unable to meet the ordinance requirements for an Affected Project can request a waiver through the online reporting system. The contractor must show that there was a good faith effort to meet the ordinance diversion requirements.
A general contractor whose Affected Project did not meet the requirements and who does not have an approved waiver is subject to a Class C misdemeanor. Contractors must keep waiver documentation for two years.
