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 the 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”.
GAIACA is uniquely positioned as a Type 11 Licensed cannabis waste management company. We are able to transport unrendered cannabis products to one of our facilities and render it per State regulations “unrecognizable and unusable” and dispose of the cannabis waste on behalf of the operator. We take it a step further and create waste manifests tracking the waste from the time we pick up from the operator’s facility to its final destruction. We then send a compliance report directly to the Bureau of Cannabis Control, proving waste compliance on behalf of the operator. We report the volume and weight of cannabis waste collected and destroyed, the streams of cannabis waste collected and destroyed, and other data associated with our cannabis waste management services.
GAIACA also provides 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.
