How It Works

Truck on scale at Commercial Waste & Recycling in Oakland, CAStep 1. You Deliver The Material To Our Permitted Facility
We are permitted (SWIS#01-AA-0302) as a Large Volume Transfer Station to receive and process non-hazardous Construction & Demolition (C&D) debris, and green waste materials.  Upon entering the facility proceed to the weigh scale to begin the transaction process.

Step 2. The Material is Identified and Weighed
Our licensed Deputy Weighmaster who operates the scale house will ask a series of questions to help properly identify the incoming materials.  Be prepared to tell the weighmaster where the waste material originated from.  For our safety and yours, please disclose any known hazards at this time.  You may be directed to keep certain materials on your vehicle.  We do not accept any hazardous materials.  We also reserve the right to refuse any incoming load or portion of any load for ANY reason.

C&D material
A load after it has been dumped

After the load has been weighed, as a returning customer, we use the Tare (empty) weight from your previous visit to calculate how much material you are dumping in the current load and charge the appropriate fee.  If your vehicle has been modified in any way (extra fuel, low fuel, added lumber rack, removed camper shell, etc) or you have material that will be staying on the vehicle after dumping; anything that might affect the accuracy of our stored Tare Weight, we request to be informed and that a new Tare Weight is established by reweighing after dumping.

 

Step 3: You are directed to the appropriate tipping area to unload your material.

Forklifts operate around the yard.

Following the instructions of the scale operator and other site staff, you will be directed to a location on the tipping pad where your vehicle can be unloaded.  Your material will again be reviewed by staff in the tipping area as part of our load checking protocol to keep prohibited materials from entering our facility.  Staff will be sorting through materials in the area and large equipment will be operating within close proximity.

You are required to stay near your vehicle at all times.  Do not wander around the site, and do not attempt to rummage through material that is on the ground.  Dusty material may be wet down by our staff to prevent airborne nuisance dust.  Site staff may assist with unloading of material, but this is not always an option due to work load constraints or other factors.  Site staff may place certain prohibited items back onto your vehicle if they are discovered in your material.
