Most states regulate C&D debris, although programs vary widely. Some states require C&D landfills to meet municipal solid waste landfill regulations, some set separate regulations for C&D landfills, and others exempt on-site C&D landfills from regulations.

This page contains additional information on C&D debris management for the states and tribes in Region 9. California and Hawaii have promulgated state definitions for C&D debris, while Arizona and Nevada have not.
