Waste Hauler Surety Bond

In 2015, more than 137 million tons of garbage were hauled to landfills. Food made up 22% of that waste followed by plastics at 19% and paper at 13%. Waste collection is a huge effort and essential for public sanitation, so the industry is regulated carefully.

A Waste Hauler bond is a type of license/permit surety bond. The bond is typically required to gain a license or permit to haul solid waste within a city state or municipality. There are more specific classifications of waste hauler in different states such as:

  • California – $10,000 Waste Tire Hauler bond.
  • Colorado – $10,000 Waste Grease Transporter bond.
  • New Mexico – $10,000 Scrap Tire Hauler bond.

There are many other specific waste hauler classifications that require surety bond security.

Waste hauler bonds provide a form of additional incentive for the licensed organization to abide by applicable regulations. The bond is typically in place to protect the public. A claim may be made on the bond in instances where the solid waste was mishandled causing loss or damage to another party.

What is a Waste Hauler Surety Bond?

This and any kind of surety bond is an agreement between three parties. The obligee is whatever entity requires the bond and sets the limits. Whichever state agency is responsible for overseeing waste management is typically the obligee, but bonds may also be required at the county, city, or municipal level, in which case those agencies would be the obligee. The principal is whoever is responsible for obtaining the bond, meaning you, the waste hauler. When a business is owned by multiple parties there may be multiple principals. The surety is any company that issues bonds that meet the state or local requirements. Viking Bond Service has become a leading surety company by offering surety bonds for waste haulers across the country.

How Does a Waste Hauler Bond Work?

Surety bonds are effectively a line of credit. They guarantee the oblige will be compensated if any rules pertaining to waste hauling are broken. Here's an example of how it works: A waste hauler damages property while picking up trash. In order to recoup to cost of repairs, the property owner files a claim with the agency overseeing waste haulers. The surety company then investigates the claim, determines if it's valid, and pays the amount of the claim up to the total of the bond. Finally, the surety collects the claim amount from you, the principal. Even though the surety company pays first, the waste hauler has full financial responsibility in the end.

How Much Does a Waste Hauler Surety Bond Cost?

The cost of a bond is a small percentage of the total bond amount, often around 2-3%. That means if you're required to have a $10,000 bond, your premium is only $200 to $300 paid annually. The exact amount you pay depends on your bond application. Underwriters will review your personal and business finances to determine how much risk you pose. Basically, they're calculating how likely you are to pay back the surety company for any claims it compensates. Applicants with bad credit can be approved but typically with higher premiums. Viking Bond Service strives to find all applicants the most affordable options available.

How to Apply for a Waste Hauler Bond

When it comes to surety bonds for waste haulers, it's wise to apply for a bond as soon as you learn you need one. Since having a bond is a condition of operating legally, you won't be able to start or sustain a business without obtaining the required surety bond. Fortunately, Viking Bond Service makes the application process simple and straightforward. You need to provide some basic information about yourself and anyone else with 10% or more ownership in the business. There may also be questions to answer about your financial history. In most cases, you receive a quote within 24 hours of completing the application. After you pay the premium and send proof of the bond to the obligee, your bond responsibilities are fulfilled for the duration of the bond.
