Waste Hauler Permit Program

A private waste hauler collecting solid waste within the City, including Construction and Demolition (C and D) Waste, must obtain an AB 939 Compliance Permit (a.k.a. Waste Hauler Permit).   

In addition to obtaining the Waste Hauler Permit, private waste haulers must:
  • Pay applicable AB 939 compliance fees of ten percent of gross receipts
  • Submit an annual report
  • Submit all other reports as required

Waste Hauling Permits, Construction & Demolition Debris Waste Hauling Permits and RecycLA/Franchise Service Providers

​As of July 1, 2017 waste hauling permit issued to non-franchise service provider (FSP) haulers shall not grant non-FSP haulers the right to collect from customers designed as Franchise System customers, unless alternative arrangements have been made with FSPs in the appropriate zones. Construction and demolition debris (C&D) waste is exempt from the franchise system.

For more details, please refer to this Zero Waste LA Franchise System Rights and Restrictions letter that was mailed to all permitted waste haulers and construction and demolition debris waste haulers.
