Construction or Demolition Material (CDM) Manifest Prgm.

Helpful Resources

Purpose: In an effort to reduce the amount of illegal dumping of CDM in the City and surrounding area, to gather data on what type and amount of CDM is disposed of or recycled at authorized facilities, and to minimize the number of applicable projects that are performed without receiving a City permit, the City of El Paso Environmental Services Department has implemented a CDM Manifest Program.
CDM is material resulting from construction or demolition projects, which includes all materials that are directly or indirectly the by-products of construction or work or that results from demolition of buildings and other structures, including, but not limited to, paper, cartons, plastic buckets and drums, gypsum board, wood, rebar, aluminum or vinyl siding, excelsior, rubber, plastics, concrete, asphalt, corrugated cardboard, roofing tiles, asphalt shingles, tar paper, and floor tiles.
When CDM is generated from a project requiring a building or demolition permit from the City, notification of the project must be made to the Environmental Services Department (ESD) when applying for the permit. In addition, a CDM manifest must be used to document each load of CDM transported from the project site to a landfill or recycling center. When the project is completed, a termination form and copies of the terminated manifests must be provided to ESD before the City will perform a final inspection at the project site.
For those persons who wish to manage CDM at the project site in accordance with Section 9.04.350 (Identification as Recyclable Materials) of the El Paso City Code, use of manifests will not be required; however, the notification and termination forms must be completed and submitted.
