  • Working with the building industry and others.
  • Addressing infrastructure.
  • Setting thresholds and diversion requirements.
  • Verifying compliance.

Board staff made a brief presentation of the Board’s model ordinance, followed by two panels of experts who discussed:

  1. Local governments’ experience with adopting and implementing C&D diversion ordinances.
  2. Industry perspectives on implementing C&D diversion ordinances.

A question and answer (Q and A) session followed the second panel presentation.
