Solid Waste Collection Vehicle Regulation

This page last reviewed December 4, 2018


Background:


The Solid Waste Collection Vehicle (SWCV) regulation was approved by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) in September 2003 to reduce the harmful health impacts of exhaust from diesel-fueled waste collection trucks. The SWCV regulation required vheicle owners to upgrade vehicles by 2010. CARB staff is currently proposing amendments to add reporting requirements for SWCV to ensure there are no unnecessary registration delays at the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The proposed amendments also include the addition of heavier diesel fueled on-road single engine cranes. These specialized cranes would be required to phase-in 2010 or newer model year engines from 2019 to 2027.
