Class Code: 9403

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 9403 is applied to employers that perform public or private collection of garbage, ashes, or refuse and the transporting of same to waste reduction or incinerator plants, rendering or fertilizer plants or dumps. There is no distinction as to the types of garbage or refuse collected, i.e., solid or liquid, commercial, industrial or residential. Also, no distinction is made as to the methods used to collect the garbage or refuse. Some employers empty cans or drums manually or toss filled plastic trash bags into trucks. Others operate mechanical equipment to lift containerized waste and dump the waste into trucks, or entire containers may be loaded onto truck chassis and empty containers are left for refilling. Drivers who remove residue from reduction or incinerator plants are also assigned to Code 9403 in accordance with the directive footnote of Code 7590—Garbage Works. Additionally, manure dealers who purchase and collect their product from stockyards, dairy farms, and other type animal farms and subsequently sell it as fertilizer are assigned by analogy to Code 9403.

Employers that collect and haul shredded documents from office locations to a disposal site are also assigned to Code 9403 by analogy. Refer to Code 8264 for employers that shred sensitive documents at office locations.
