Solid Waste Collection Vehicle Rule

This page last reviewed September 21, 2018


Background:


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.
