Required Inspections:

1. Backfill – Prior to placement of fill material.

(Only clean fill can be used and a minimum of 6” inches of topsoil must cover the surface to be brought back to grade. Compaction of 95% of fill material is recommended to minimize settling.) This inspection is required if the excavation is not to be used in the replacement of another structure in the same location.

             2.  Final – Work completed, job site free of debris, graded and seeded.

Proper Disposal of Construction Material & Debris

 

Concrete, brick and block are classified as Class B recyclables and are regulated by the DEP, Division of Solid and Hazardous Waste, Recycling Regulations N.J.A.C. 7:26A. Those who generate Class B recyclables have two options for disposal. The first is to transport the material to a recycling center; the second is to reuse the material on-site as clean fill.

 

The recycling or reuse of these materials that are generated, processed, and reused on-site are exempt from the approval requirements of the DEP N.J.A.C. 7:26A-1.4(a)2. To qualify for this exemption, the DEP, Morris County and Borough of Mendham must be provided with written notification of the activity as per N.J.A.C. 7:26A-1.4(b) 5.

 

To be considered for an exemption, all of the following conditions must be met:

1.     The material being used for clean fill is generated at the site. Materials may not be imported for other locations.

2.     The material is not contaminated by exposure to chemicals from industrial processes or exposure to other contaminants.

3.     The clean fill is not mixed with other materials such as wood, glass, plastic, etc. 4. The material is processed to reduce its size in order to minimize voids in the fill.

 

EXAMPLE:

A homeowner wants to demolish his swimming pool and reuse the debris as fill in its place. They must provide evidence that they notified the DEP and the Morris County Solid Waste Coordinator in writing to the Borough of Mendham.

 

Any debris that is not concrete, brick or block must be removed from the demolition debris. This includes removal of any rebar, vinyl (from the liner), or wood from the debris. The concrete, block, or brick must be broken up to the point where it will minimize voids in the fill. A good rule of thumb is three to four inches in diameter.
