Solid Waste Collection Vehicle Regulation
The Solid Waste Collection Vehicle (SWCV) regulation was adopted by the Board in 2004. All SWCVs, except for certain low-use vehicles, were required to have particulate matter (PM) filters installed by December 31, 2010. In January 2019, the Board approved amendments to the SWCV regulation. The amended regulation continues to apply to 2006 model year and older engines in garbage roll-off and garbage packer trucks. Reporting of these trucks is now mandatory and the information will be used to minimize the chance for unnecessary registration delays at the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The approved amendments also added requirements specific to certain specialized on-road diesel-fueled heavy cranes with a single engine.
