Current List of Franchise Haulers​

Commercial Waste Haulers​

Haulers​ who collect, transport, transfer, dispose and/or recycle commercially-generated solid waste including putrescible organic material, must have a current valid franchise to operate in the SWA region. Franchises are non-exclusive, meaning that SWA policies allow franchised haulers to collect material throughout the SWA service area. All requirements, including annual renewal, quarterly tonnage and monthly revenue reports, are detailed in SWA Code. 

For assistance on filling out the application​ or to determine whether the franchise requirements apply, contact us.
