Hours of Service of Drivers: Kimble Recycling & Disposal, Inc.; Application for Exemption

Notice of final disposition.

FMCSA announces its decision to grant Kimble Recycling & Disposal, Inc.'s (KRD) request for an exemption from the 12-hour limit of the hours-of-service (HOS) short-haul exception. The exemption enables all KRD's drivers who operate commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) to collect waste and recycling materials to use the short-haul exception but return to their work-reporting location within 14 hours instead of the usual 12 hours without losing their short-haul status. FMCSA has analyzed the application and the public comments and has determined that the exemption, subject to the terms and conditions imposed, will likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent such exemption.
