Where can I get a copy of the four-digit chemical codes ...

Resolved Question:

Where can I get a copy of the four-digit chemical codes used on trucks? These codes indicate the content of the truck. I've come to recognize some of them, but I often see numbers I do not know. Thank you!

Thanks for the quick response! What I am looking for is a list of the four-digit numbers seen on the diamond-shaped signs found on truck trailers and railroad tank cars that indicate the content. I believe, for example, that 1996 is diesel or heating oil, 2003 I believe is gasoline, 1074 is liquid asphalt, etc.
Expert:  Tracy replied 7 years ago.
Well, after much searching, I was unable to find what you need. I know exactly what you're looking for, but it's not easy to find online

I will opt out of this question and give another expert the chance to find this for you.
Expert:  John D replied 7 years ago.

Hi,

I believe what you're looking for is the code for Dangerous and Hazardous (which are mostly chemicals as you said). These are four digit numbers appearing on placards on the side of trucks and they and they range from 1001 to 9279

Reply to Tracy's Post: Tracy, thank you for your attempt. It did lead to a helpful answer. I have never used this site/system before. Can I still send you something for your trouble?

Okay I have an answer for you. You can either accept my question for the $15, or you can email info@justanswer.com and have them change the value of the question and you can accept it at the lower value.

Again, thank you so much for offering to send something my way! Laughing
