In New Jersey, numerous companies transport and dispose of solid, medical or hazardous waste produced by someone else. These companies must first register and obtain a license from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection before they can haul waste.

Commercial Waste Transporters

An applicant wanting to dispose of solid waste commercially must first file business and personal disclosure statements. The disclosure statements ask for information about the company applying, such as its name and location, as well as personal information about the company’s owners, which is used to conduct a background check. After the NJDEP reviews and approves the disclosure statements, it gives the applicant a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity. The applicant must also file a registration statement with the NJDEP to receive an identification number and decals for all solid waste transport vehicles. All forms are located on the NJDEP website.


If a company or individual wants to transport and dispose of its own solid waste, it must apply for an exempt permit. The exempt permit requires the applicant to apply in person by scheduling an interview with his county’s agency. During the interview, the applicant fills out and signs the permit application in front of a notary public stating that all waste he moves and disposes of is his own. The NJDEP lists all county agency contacts on its website for the applicant to find his agency. The other option is for the applicant to download the application package from the website and fill out the forms in front of a notary public on his own.
