NSWMA Reviewing Court Ruling on Hours

A federal appeals court ruled on an hours-of-service case that could affect waste collection operations.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia upheld most of the Department of Transportation’s revised Hours of Service regulation that went into affect July 1, said David Biderman, general counsel and vice president, government affairs, for the National Solid Wastes Management Association (NSWMA), in an e-mail.

The court however did not uphold a 30-minute requirement for local routes. The court upheld a 34-hour restart provision that could impact waste collection operations in limited circumstances, he said.

"NSWMA is reviewing the decision and expect to provide guidance on its impact next week to members," he said.
