Who can use the SQG program?

SQGs generate dangerous waste, but do so in lesser quantities than other generator categories. While all dangerous waste generators must follow the Dangerous Waste Regulations, the rules for SQGs are less complex than those of other generators, which is why being “small” can be a benefit. Determine your generator status and learn which rules you must follow.

Generally, these are businesses, agencies, and organizations (including churches and non-profits) that generate:

  • less than 220 pounds of dangerous waste,

  • 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. 

How can my business get free, hands-on help?

SQGs can get free, hands-on pollution prevention assistance to help them improve workplace safety, better understand the regulations, and other helpful advice. Contact the local specialists at Kitsap Public Health (360)728-2235 for a free consultation.

What is dangerous waste?

Dangerous waste has one or more of the following properties: toxic, ignitable, corrosive, or reactive. Most businesses and organizations generate some form of dangerous waste that's potentially harmful to our health and environment. They are required to handle, store, and dispose of it properly.
