Other Diesel Fleet Regulations/Programs

This page last reviewed August 30, 2018

California's solid waste collection vehicle rule was passed in September 2003 to reduce the harmful health impacts of exhaust from diesel-fueled waste collection trucks. The solid waste collection vehicle regulation (SWCV) will reduce cancer-causing particulate matter and smog-forming nitrogen oxide emissions from these trucks by requiring owners to use ARB verified control technology that best reduces emissions, following a phased-in schedule from 2004 through 2010.

Public Workshops to Discuss Proposed Amendments

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a public workshop to discuss proposed amendments to the Diesel Particulate Matter Control Measure for On-road Heavy-duty Diesel-fueled Residential and Commercial Solid Waste Collection Vehicles (SWCV) regulation. The proposal would clarify the definition of vehicles subject to the SWCV regulation and would require reporting for all fleets that own or operate pre-2010 model year diesel engines to improve enforceability and to avoid delays with California DMV registration starting in 2020. In addition, the proposed amendments would include Phase-in requirements for specialized single-engine heavy cranes.

The workshops will be held on the following dates and locations (please see workshop notice for dates & times).

Sacramento Wednesday September 19, 2018
Diamond Bar Friday September 21, 2018

The Sacramento workshop will be webcast. You may find more information on the webcast for the Sacramento workshop at Cal/EPA Webcast.
