To receive a permit, a waste hauler must be registered and have a public health license from the Alameda County Health Department. The company also must have insurance coverage for property damage and bodily injury of at least $1,000,000 per occurrence.
Like all wastewater customers, waste haulers must comply with prohibited discharge standards. Drivers are responsible for collecting a sample each time a load is discharged and for filling out the required manifest and log. DSRSD will randomly select samples for analysis.
Waste haulers pay wastewater service charges based on the flow and strength of the septage waste they discharge, as measured by Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS). Waste haulers also pay fees for sample analysis and permit administration. Other fees may apply as a result of enforcement actions.
