C&D Facility Certification

There are many facilities throughout the Bay Area that accept C&D material. Our agency understands that each facility operates differently, and accepts different types of materials. For this reason, RecycleSmart offers two different C&D Facility Certification procedures:

  1. Simplified facility certification procedure for facilities that accept source separated materials, reuse & repair facilities, and facilities that are currently third-party certified by another city, county or local jurisdiction. There is no fee for the simplified certification.
  2. Municipal Recovery Certification (MRC) procedure (third-party verification procedure) for facilities that accept mixed C&D material. The fee structure for this procedure is found below. 

If your facility wishes to accept C&D material from projects within the RecycleSmart service area and be listed on the RecycleSmart Green Halo website, please apply for facility certification. On or before January 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 source separated materials, reuse & repair facilities, and facilities that are currently third-party certified by another city, county or local jurisdiction. Please complete this simplifed application and email your complete application to authority@recyclesmart.org. If you have questions about this application procedure please call RecycleSmart at (925) 906-1801 or email. 

 

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.  

Application process: 

  1. Submit initial MRC application documents to Tseng and Associates. 
  2. Provide payment to Tseng and Associates. 
  3. Obtain and submit follow-up facility operations documentation. 
  4. Schedule and complete facility site assessment.
