C&D Facility Certification
RecycleSmart offers two different C&D Facility Certification procedures for facilities that accept loads of mixed C&D Debris:
- Simplified facility certification procedure for facilities that are currently third-party certified (within the past 12 months) by another city, county or professional evaluator. There is no fee for the simplified certification.
- Municipal Recovery Certification (MRC) procedure (third-party verification procedure). The fee structure for this procedure is found below.
If your facility wishes to accept loads of mixed C&D Debris from projects within the RecycleSmart service area and be listed on the RecycleSmart Green Halo account, please apply for facility certification. Facilities that accept source separated C&D materials and materials for reuse / repair do not need to apply.
On or before December 31, 2021, facilities listed on the RecycleSmart Approved C&D Processing Facility list and the RecycleSmart Green Halo website, must obtain certification through one of the certification procedures outlined below:
Certification Procedure Option One: Simplified Facility Certification
The simplified facility certification procedure is for facilities that accept loads of mixed C&D Debris and are currently third-party certified (within the past 12 months) by another city, county or professional evaluator. Please complete this simplifed application and email your complete application to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about this application procedure please email or call RecycleSmart at (925) 906-1801.
Facility Certification Option Two: Municipal Recovery Certification (MRC)
RecycleSmart, Zero Waste Sonoma and Solano County have partnered to develop a third-party C&D processing facility assessment and certification procedure called Municipal Recovery Certification (MRC). MRC will be used to evaluate mixed C&D facilities for their ability to meet AB 939, CALGreen, and local C&D Ordinance diversion requirements.
The purpose of the Municipal Recovery Certification assessment is to:
- Provide a regional facility certification process, creating efficiencies for use by multiple jurisdictions.
- Develop a comprehensive third-party assessment procedure that observes and reviews facility operations and record keeping.
- Develop a tiered procedure and fee structure which recognizes that mixed material processing facilities are not all the same in terms of size, operation, and funding.
- Provide technical and regulatory assistance for facilities that participate.
To obtain facility certification through the Municipal Recovery Certification (MRC) assessment process, download and complete the initial MRC application documents.
- Submit initial MRC application documents to Tseng and Associates (the MRC authorized 3rd party verifier).
- Provide payment to Tseng and Associates.
- Obtain and submit follow-up facility operations documentation.
- Schedule and complete facility site assessment.
