DEC Transitioning to Electronic Collection of Vehicle Information

The Waste Transportation Vehicle Registration is now available through our ANR Online system.  This new electronic form will be used for submitting Annual Renewals, Five-Year Permit Renewals, and updating vehicle information. If you are a new food residual hauler, apply for a permit at the link above!

In order to streamline this change for haulers with a large number of vehicles, please provide your current vehicle information to DEC before completing your Annual Renewal or New Permit Application.  Click here for more information.

Waste Haulers

Any party intending to haul solid waste (including food residuals), hazardous waste, regulated medical waste and or residual waste to or from any location in Vermont for compensation must obtain a hauling permit from the Agency of Natural Resources. Permits allow the Agency to hold waste haulers accountable for practicing safe and environmentally sound transportation methods, and delivering waste materials to an appropriate final destination. This page contains information on applying for and renewing waste hauler permits, as well as recent policy guidelines affecting waste haulers. 

Hauler Permit Information

Criteria for Jurisdiction

All commercial haulers  operating within the State of Vermont are required to obtain and maintain a waste transportation permit. A commercial hauler is defined as:

(a) any person that transports regulated quantities of hazardous waste; and,
(b) any person that transports solid and residual (septage or sewage) waste for compensation.

 Permits are issued as five-year permits, and are required to be renewed on an annual basis by submitting an updated version of the vehicle report form and an annual statement. Potential solid waste haulers should check with their local solid waste management district for additional permit requirements, if any.
