Answer

Many cities in California require already that construction and demolition debris generated during the building, remodeling, or removal of buildings needs to be recycled. This is applicable for the following materials: concrete, asphalt, drywall, wood, glass, metals, red clay brick, soil, tree trimmings, shrubs, etc.

Contact your local Building Department (City) and they will have a list of certified recycling companies and charity organizations to which you can donate salvageable materials.
