In addition to obtaining the Waste Hauler Permit, private waste haulers must:

  • Submit an annual report
  • Submit all other reports as required, including but not limited to AB 341 reporting forms

All haulers and contractors responsible for handling C and D waste must obtain a Private Waste Hauler Permit prior to collecting, hauling and transporting C and D waste from within the City, and C and D waste can only be taken to City certified C and D processing facilities.


Non-compliance penalties of up to $5,000 will be assessed for every load of C and D waste not taken to City certified processors. For a current list of City certified processors of C and D waste, scroll down to the bottom of this page.
