Dangerous Waste Disposal for Small Quantity Generators

Small Quantity Generator (SQG) Program

The Kitsap County SQG program helps qualifying businesses and organizations follow dangerous waste regulations. It offers affordable disposal appointments and optional site visits.

Most businesses and organizations generate some form of dangerous waste - waste that's potentially harmful to our health and environment. Use the SQG Program to safely and affordably dispose of small quantities of dangerous waste.

Benefit from Our Services

Dangerous waste is more common than you think. Dangerous waste has one or more of the following properties: toxic, ignitable, corrosive, or reactive.

What businesses or organizations have dangerous waste?

Businesses, agencies, and organizations (including churches and non-profits) are required to determine whether the waste they generate is dangerous. They must also handle dangerous waste safely and dispose of it properly. Learn more about dangerous waste.

Who can use the program?

Businesses, agencies, and organizations (including churches and non-profits) that generate:

  • less than 220 pounds of dangerous waste, or 
  • less than 2.2 pounds of certain kinds of highly toxic waste in any month, or
  • accumulate less than 2200 lbs. of dangerous waste on site at any time. 

Determine your generator status and learn which rules you must follow.
