Can I include construction and demolition debris in my garbage?

Construction debris generated by a contractor will not be collected or disposed of by the City. Residential construction debris in small quantities, 1 cubic yard or less, when properly prepared, contained, and located, will be taken each week with the regular trash collection from residential properties containing three or less living units. Quantities between 1 and 8 cubic yards may be disposed of with a permit at the Municipal Yard for a fee or by paying a fee for special pickup. The City will not collect or offer permits for the disposal of owner-generated demolition material in excess of 8 cubic yards.
