Basic Registration

In accordance with the Solid Waste Managment Ordinance (349 KB), basic registration is required when:

  • Self-hauling of solid waste from a commercial site, or

  • Collecting and transporting yard waste, construction debris and/or demolition debris as an adjunct secondary service to a primary service of providing labor or general site cleanup services, or

  • Providing collection and transportation services for only yard waste, construction debris, demolition debris, contaminated soils and/or asbestos.

NOTE: Registration does not grant authority to engage in the business of providing collection and transportation services for mixed municipal solid waste and/or industrial solid waste.

If you are required to be registered but are also seeking access to the Olmsted Waste-to-Energy Facility (OWEF) to dispose of acceptable wastes that can be directly tipped at OWEF, proceed to OWEF Tipping Floor Access.
