New Jersey residents are permitted to transport solid waste that is produced at home to the ACUA in a vehicle with a non-commercial license plate having a total weight (vehicle + solid waste) of less than 9,000 lbs. If towing a trailer with solid waste, the total weight must be less than 16,000 lbs.
For example, if you are resident that has completed a project at your home and are transporting remodeling or clean-out debris in a vehicle with a non-commercial license plate, this is acceptable.
Rented vehicles to transport waste are not permitted (ex. vehicles from Lowes, Home Depot, U-Haul, Just 4 Wheels, etc.).
Any customer not in compliance must be turned away at the landfill by New Jersey State law.
A small hauler (contractor, roofer, landscaper, etc.) that is transporting solid waste must register and obtain an A-901 Exempt Solid Waste Decal from the NJDEP in order to bring waste to the ACUA.
To register with the NJDEP visit:
As a commercial hauler (contractors hauling waste for others, mattress/bedding removal, residential commercial or estate cleanouts, furniture dealers doing removal/disposal, etc.) transporting waste created by someone else, you must be licensed and obtain A-901 Licensed Solid Waste Decal from the NJDEP.
