Construction & Demolition                               

Stockton Municipal Code Sections 8.28.020 through 8.28.070 requires all permit applicants identify the debris ttheir project will generate and recycle accordingly.



As of January 1, 2017, at least 65% of construction and/or demolition debris must be diverted from landfills. A final disposal and recycling report must be submitted within 14 days of job completion.


Compliance with the City's Construction & Demolition ordinance is critical for Stockton to meet the State mandate requiring every city and county to divert 65% of its waste from landfills.  If Stockton fails to achieve this mandate, the State may issue fines of up to $10,000 per day for non-compliance.


The program details are outlined in the Construction and Demolition Brochure.
