The Type 11 License in California cannabis is a Distribution License. This isn’t limited to traditional distributors, who are responsible for transporting cannabis goods, arranging for testing of cannabis goods, and conducting quality assurance reviews of cannabis goods to ensure they comply with all the packaging and labeling requirements. This also applies to cannabis waste management.

What is a Type 11 License in California?

It is imperative that your cannabis waste management service provider has a Type 11 License if they are picking up unrendered cannabis product and transporting it to a processing facility to render on behalf of the operator. This is what distinguishes a typical “waste hauler” from a “cannabis waste management service provider”.

Look for vendors who provide waste management plans that can be submitted to the State and incorporated into SOPs, non-hazardous and hazardous waste management services, and environmental consulting including hazard analysis, OSHA compliance and more.
