Municipal and Residual Waste Transportation Safety Program

The Waste Transportation Safety Act (Act 90 of 2002, Chapter 62) requires all waste transportation vehicles (trucks and truck tractors with a registered gross vehicle weight greater than 17,000 lbs., and trailers with a registered gross vehicle weight greater than 10,000 lbs.) transporting municipal or residual waste to waste processing or disposal facilities in Pennsylvania to have a valid Waste Transporter Authorization. The law prohibits processing and disposal facilities from accepting waste from waste transportation vehicles that do not have a valid authorization, including vehicles with expired authorization stickers and cab cards.

Important Information

Haulers are reminded to renew their authorization at least 90 days prior to expiration date to avoid a lapse in their authorization. Authorizations do not renew automatically. Review Waste Transportation Safety Program Act 90 Overview for more information.
