C&D Facility Municipal Recovery Certification

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 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 processing facilities are not all the same in terms of size, operation, and funding. 
  • Provide technical and regulatory assistance for facilities that participate.  

On or before January 31, 2021, facilities listed on the RecycleSmart Approved C&D Processing Facility list must obtain certification through Municipal Recovery Certification or another RecycleSmart-approved third party assessment process, as required by RecycleSmart Ordinance No.19-1.
