Fact Sheets


Solid Waste Collection Vehicle Requirements The amendments clarify the definition of vehicles subject to the SWCV regulation and require reporting for all fleets that own or operate pre-2010 model year diesel engines to improve enforceability and to avoid delays with DMV registration starting in 2020.
Heavy Crane Requirements The Solid Waste Collection Vehicle regulation was amended in 2019 to include specialized on-road single engine diesel-fueled heavy cranes and allow sufficient time for operators to upgrade equipment through phase-in requirements. This option would recognize the limited ability to safely retrofit existing cranes and the high cost of replacing this specialized equipment. These vehicles were previously subject to the Truck and Bus regulation.
