What is a Waste Transport Bond?
A Waste Transport Bond is required by some municipalities for anyone seeking to transport waste and/or recycling materials within the municipality. The City of Houston, for instance, requires this bond under Article XI of Chapter 47 of the Houston Code of Ordinances. The bond amount will vary according to the municipality of the principal. The bond is designed to protect the municipality against any financial losses as a result of poor financial decisions, damages, unethical decisions, or a failure to follow state and local laws.
