Basic Solid Waste Facility Operator Training for First-Time Applicants

Due to a number of factors, the NH Department of Environmental Services (DES) is postponing the Basic Solid Waste Facility Operator Training class that was scheduled for Friday, August 14, 2015. DES will notify all applicants when the next class is scheduled and will automatically register them to attend. Operators are still required to submit an initial application package within 30 days of beginning work at a NH solid waste facility in order to obtain Processed Applicant status and be eligible to work at the solid waste facility. All Processed Applicants must work under the supervision of a Principal Operator at all times. If this requirement presents a hardship, please contact the DES Solid Waste Facility Operator Training & Certification Program.

DES regrets any inconvenience the delay in training causes. We are available during regular business hours to answer questions and provide technical assistance as needed. For more information about the Program, please visit our website at: http://des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/waste/swrtas/index.htm or e-mail your questions to solidwasteinfo@des.nh.gov. If you do not have access to the Internet, please phone us from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm Monday - Friday at (603) 271-2925.
