There are two main avenues to permit your waste: 1) Generator of waste obtains a Permit and has it hauled, or 2) Generator hires an approved hauler to obtain a Permit and haul waste.

Follow these easy steps to have your waste stream reviewed.

  1. If your company already has a Permit, fill out the Trucked Non-Hazardous Material Acceptance Agreement (MAA) below. The MAA should only be submitted by a company with an existing Permit or is in the process of applying for one. Send the form along with appropriate lab data and Material Safety Data Sheets to or fax to (510) 287-1530.
  2. If necessary, call (510) 287-1336 to obtain a list of Approved Permitted Haulers who can profile your wastestream, or use the Waste Disposal Permit Application packet below to apply for your own Permit.
  3. Use the Wastestream Information Form if the process generating the waste is more complex than space allows on the MAA.
