California City considers C&D recycling ordinance.

The City Council of Barstow, Calif., has been considering a proposed construction and demolition debris recycling ordinance, according to a report in the city's Desert Dispatch.

If approved, the proposed legislation would require applicants for building and demolition permits in the city to recycle as much of the debris generated during their projects as possible.

According to the report, a draft of the proposed ordinance establishes a recycling program for construction projects at a cost of more than $50,000 and demolition projects at a cost of more than $25,000.

Barstow joins a growing number of cities in the state that are considering or have passed legislation to meet California's strict 50-percent recycling requirements. San Diego approved a C&D recycling mandate in September 2005 and Apple Valley, Calif., approved a similar ordinance in October of the same year.
