Dumpsters for Construction, Demolition, and Remodel Projects

Haulers and building permit applicants must comply with the City of San Ramon's construction and demolition debris recycling ordinance, and reuse or recycle at least 50% of the debris. As with recyclables, construction and demolition debris hauling is a competitive market, and the City does not set rates or service fees.
