Premium Cannabis Waste Management

Our extensive experience in specialized waste management aside, our mission is tailored around providing you with an exceptional service that keeps your cannabis business in compliance.


Cannabis waste is a topic that many are not aware or pay any attention to. It's one of our highest priorities to educate our communities and cannabis businesses about cannabis waste.


After your cannabis waste has been collected by our technician you will receive a digital manifest with the required details for compliance which are also accessible through our online portal.


Part of our solution is to collect and transport your waste for proper disposal. During each collection the container(s) we provide you are loaded up and replaced with clean ones for next time.

Going Green

Our team is focused on screening any material(s) that can be recycled and aim to establish partnerships to create a closed loop system.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is it cannabis waste disposal a state requirement?

Yes. Regulated by the Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC), California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), California Department of Health (CDPH) and by your local municipality. It is required of any business that conducts cannabis activities must properly manage and dispose of cannabis waste. This includes: dispensaries, cultivators, testing labs, distributors, or other micro-business licensees. Learn more about the Cannabis Waste Regulations In California.

2. Is cannabis waste a part of track and trace?

Yes, all cannabis waste needs to be properly documented and you must keep accurate and organized records for each batch. As a part of the track-and-trace procedures we provide you with a electronic manifest that records the weight, date and time of both collection and deposit, all accessible to you through our online portal.

3. Do I need to make my cannabis waste unusable and unrecognizable?

Yes. Per the regulations set forth by the BCC, CDFA, and CDPH, all cannabis by product must be rendered into cannabis waste before it is hauled away from your cannabis operation. Read the state regulations.

4. Can I throw cannabis waste into the dumpster?

The regulations for cannabis waste management were put in place to ensure that all cannabis materials are being properly tracked and managed. In order to avoid illicit activities the State of California required all cannabis waste to be disposed into a secured waste receptacle and be rendered unrecognizable before it is hauled out of your premises and deposited at a licensed landfill, composting, or digestion facility with documentation supporting the cannabis waste was properly disposed.

5. Does EcoWaste provide a waste management plan?

Yes! Every client receives a thorough and in-depth Service Operating Procedure (SOP) or in other words a cannabis waste management plan that outlines the entire process. You will be able to use the SOP for all your licensing applications.
