This sector includes establishments that perform activities to support the day-to-day operations of other organizations, and establishments that collect, treat, and dispose of waste materials. Support activities are usually provided on a contract or fee basis, and may be provided in-house to affiliated organizations, commercially to unaffiliated organizations, or both.

Establishments that provide Administrative and Support Services, or Waste Management and Remediation Services, and have paid employees, will receive a Census mail package with several types of materials.
The materials are similar in content, but customized to make reporting easier for different groups of covered establishments. These establishments will receive either an Information Sheet and Census form, or a Classification form. Companies with multiple operating establishments will receive the appropriate Information Sheet for every group of similar forms, and not necessarily one Information Sheet for every form.
Information Sheets provide general information about the Census and instructions for reporting selected items on the Census form. Administrative and Support and Waste Management and Remediation Services establishments will receive Information Sheet SV-ST_I_12 or if they are enterprise support establishments, Information Sheet SV-ST-A_I_12.
Census Forms describe each data item for Administrative and Support and Waste Management and Remediation Services establishments, and provide instructions and formats for reporting them. Census forms for these establishments are numbered AS-56xxx.
