Construction Waste Management Plans

*Assistance filling out Construction Waste Management Plan (CWMP) applications is available over the phone by calling (909) 386-8701 or in-person at the Solid Waste Management Division office at 222 W. Hospitality Ln, 2nd Floor, San Bernardino, CA 92415. If you would like in-person assistance, it is best to call ahead for an appointment.*

Per the 2019 CALGreen code, 65% of construction and demolition (C&D) materials must be diverted away from the landfill by either recycling or reusing materials.

The purpose of the CWMP Part 1 is to estimate the tonnage to be disposed and diverted during construction and also to plan where the materials will end up before the project is even started. The CWMP Part 2 shows the actual tonnage amount of the waste materials generated from the project through receipts from recycling facilities, landfills, or a reuse certification.



For building permit applications submitted July 31, 2017 and thereafter, submit a CWMP Part 1 and Part 2 application online* at: https://ezop.sbcounty.gov/citizenaccess/.
