Because specific requirements for transporting waste vary depending on local ordinances, the local board of health should be contacted to identify special requirements for each community in which the transporter picks up solid waste.

DPU issues certifications of compliance with motor carriers' regulations concerning the transportation of passengers or property for hire.
