DEEP: Certification for Solid Waste Facility Operators

Certification & Training For Solid Waste Facility Operators


NEW! Only new employees, who have never been certified, must attend the Certification class.  As of July 1, 2017, anyone who is currently certified to operate any CT Solid Waste Facility, no longer needs to re-attend the Certification class for renewal.  All Certificates with expiration dates after July 1, 2017 are now valid indefinitely. 

Sections 22a-209-6 and 22a-231-1 of the Connecticut Solid Waste Management Regulations requires the certification and training for operators of all solid waste facilities that are permitted or authorized by the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP). Operators of Connecticut landfills, transfer stations, volume reduction facilities, resources recovery facilities, recycling facilities (MRFs/IPCs) and general permitted facilities may attend training classes and take an examination to obtain DEEP certification. A certification application form must be completed and an operator must pre-register to attend any currently scheduled training class.  For further information, contact Carey L. Hurlburt at (860) 424-3248.
