Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is it a requirement to dispose cannabis waste?

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. Read the State Regulation.

2. Does my cannabis waste need to be 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 the premises. Visit the Regulations and view section 5054 of the BCC’s Text.

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. Do I receive a cannabis waste management plan from Ecowaste?

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.
