New Chatham County ordinance targets construction & demolition debris

A recently adopted Construction and Demolition (C&D) Recycling Ordinance aims to reduce the amount of C&D debris headed to North Carolina landfills from Chatham County. The ordinance applies to any C&D projects 1,000 square feet or greater within the county’s unincorporated areas. Projects include construction, demolition, deconstruction, repairs, remodels, additions, or any other related activity requiring a building permit.
