Determine Estimated Project Debris

  1. Use the project type to determine waste generated.
    • Demolition (typical): 40lbs/ft2
    • Commercial Construction: 4.7 lbs/ft2
    • Commercial Construction-Tenant Improvement: 4.6lbs/ft2
    • New Multifamily Residential Construction: 11.5lbs/ft2
    • New Residential Construction (Single-Family): 8.5lbs/ft2
    • Wood Only (deck construction): 2lbs/ft2
  2. Determine the project’s estimated debris, multiply by the appropriate waste generated amount above by the project’s square footage.
  3. Multiply the estimated debris by .65 to determine the required pounds of diversion.
  4. Divide by 2,000 to determine tons of debris.
 Project Type             
 Project Square Footage  
 Project Estimated Debris (lbs)  
 Multiply lbs by .65  

 

This is the number of pounds that must be diverted to be eligible for a full refund. To determine tonnage, divide this number by 2,000.

Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan - Before Construction

  • Demonstrate how the project will achieve the required diversion onsite.
  • Refer to the City of Los Angeles website for certified mixed debris recycling facility rates
