How To Get Certified To Remove Hazards In California?

Does anyone know the process on how to get licensed in California to remove hazardous waste? I'm been doing research for awhile but keep getting the run around

You will need to aquire a Hazmat License, A CDOT Number for transporting.
They are very strict in CA about that.
FNMA has their own contract with a hazmat company is the information that I have been supplied.
I know that when we cross the border we have to leave anything...tires, paints and other liquids...including unidentifable liquids and refers and freezers, air condition units with condnsors...TV's and monitoes are classfified as E-Waste...

I would contact the cuounty treasurer where you get your business license...they should be able to tell you

I wouldn't dount it...I try not to cross the border...too many regulations over there...sems like new ones every day...
I honestly do not knw how you guys over ther make the fees work with all the permits and licensing you have to have...
Unless of course, you get better fees than everyone else because of that...

I was thinking about getting into the hazardous removal side because the profit margin is 50%. It's straight up $10 a gallon to remove and it cost $5 to dispose of not including gas driving around but I guess it all depends on the startup cost with that license. And I heard there is different levels to where you could cover maybe only household stuff and not refinery toxic waste and the like

with transportation costs here it is running me about the same...the tires are ahet kill me. Becaus of the size can only transport so many...
Fortunately I have an arrangement with a shop and I go remove that ones on rims and scrap them unless we come up with a set then we can get 30-40 bucks...We have a 44 yard dumpster for locks & boxes and rems...we break everything done to help offset costs...

In Kentucky you are supposed to have a solid waste license and run DOT numbers if your truck and trailer gross weight is over 10,000 ibs. but still a lot FNG`s out there not running numbers. But I do think in the next few years DOT will be cracking down up them to collect fees!

Hello All,

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.
