    Hi I was in the indusrty for a number of years, and I am looking to get back in the biz. I understand now in NJ and NY you need to have a sign and # on your truck with department of sanitation. I am also hearing that guy's are having their trucks seized for not being licensed. Back in the day I just had liability and was registered with the state. I am just looking to mow lawns and prefer organic fertilizers to chem. Do I need to register with Department of consumer affairs and such to mow lawns? Any help appreciated, I have put off going out there even though It's my passion and what I enjoy most.

    Make sure you know all the rules, a GREAT place to start is with your state's web site.

    I agree, while most on this site are trying to be helpful... sometimes the information they give is errounous.

    I checked with my local state dept, and there is nothing specific to lawns. Hence that is why I am here. If someone here has been out there cutting lawns in NJ for the past couple of years please get back to me. I am not expecting proffessional legal advice in which I will hold anyone accountable for my actions , just some guidelines please. For instance I am wondering how to register with the department of sanitation or if that is a must that is necessary and does my truck have to be numbered?
