So glad I ran into this post. Speaking from experience: starting a hazardous waste transportation company in California is... a pain in the a$$. My company is fully permitted, licensed, and insured, but I've paid more into these papers and disposal (@Freddie), than I've made. Even if you attain the general permits, OSHA, DOT, DTSC, EPA, CHP, BOE, FMCSA, among many other agencies will looking at you with a microscope.
After gas, disposal costs, and payroll, I'm lucky if I break even. Workers Comp. if filed legally, on a hazardous materials handling/transporting employee can exceed 25% of his pay.
