How to get started in NJ

Hey guys, looking to turn my small time mowing operation into a real functioning company. So I have a few questions on what I need to do.

How do I go about getting a DEP number?

What kind of insurance do I need?

Do I need commercial plates on my truck, and if so, how do I flip them?

And what are some of the first steps I should take in making my company legit?

Thanks for your time and for answering my newbie questions.

What's up man, I'm in NJ too. Where are you servicing? And as for your questions

1. What exactly do you want a DEP number for? Hauling Garbage?
2. You will need General Liability Insurance & Commercial Auto
3. You will definitely need commercial plates on your trucks, as well as some sort of lettering. Just go to your local MVC and tell them you need commercial plates once you have your commercial auto policy.
4. You must register with the state to do business at: http://www.nj.gov/njbusiness/registration/

I live in Morris County
I thought I would need a DEP number to dump landscaping waste in the MCMUA in Mount Olive.
And now that I know, ill definitely take care of the truck.
Thank you very much

As far as I know you don't need the number for leaves brush and grass with the mcmua. I never had it. Just pay the atrocious fee and you should be able to dump without an issue. that may have all changed though.
