What types of special training, insurance, licensing, certifications, or regulations does a recycling business need to comply with?

For licenses and permits, that will depend on the scope and size of your operation. To start, you should contact your local City Hall, Chamber of Commerce and/or the Department of Environmental Quality. Bryce Hulsey, Recycling Coordinator for the OK DEQ, would be your contact there (*protected email*). The National Recycling Coalition (NRC) is working on developing a set of criteria for the certification of recycling professionals.
