Solid Waste Collector Registration and Reporting

All solid waste collectors who operate in the District of Columbia are required to register and report annually with the Office of Waste Diversion in the Department of Public Works in accordance with DC Official Code § 8-1031.05 and DC Official Code § 8-1031.06

Registration will be available here once the associated regulations have been adopted. The proposed rulemaking is currently in public comment and can be found here. If you would like to be notified electronically when registration is open, please send an email to [email protected]. More information is available in the Registration Guide, attached below.

Beginning January 1, 2017, solid waste collectors should begin to track solid data for the purpose of reporting to the Office of Waste Diversion. The first solid waste report will require data for the entirety of calendar year 2017 and will be due February 1, 2018.

Annual reporting will include:

  • Location, name, and facility type of each delivery facility used to dispose of any solid waste collected in the District
  • Type of material delivered
  • Tonnage of the material delivered

Solid waste data will be submitted once per calendar year but the annual reporting form will require that solid waste data is broken out into quarters.

Detailed reporting guidelines will be released before the completion of calendar year 2017.
