New Ordinance
As a result of the concerns regarding California's landfill capacity, the State requires the City to develop programs that divert recyclable waste from our local landfills. On September 14, 2000, the Santa Fe Springs City Council adopted Ordinance No. 914 amending Chapter 50 of the Municipal Code by adding new provisions for the recycling and disposal of construction, demolition and renovation debris.

The required goal for projects over $50,000 is to reuse or recycle 75% of the project waste. Click on the link below to see the list of Permitted Recycling Dealers
