(Very Small Quantity Generator of Hazardous Waste)
Who is a VSQG? VSQGs are businesses, units of government, schools, non-profit groups & organizations that generate less than 220 lbs./month & accumulate less than 2,200 lbs of hazardous materials at any one time. Those with an EPA ID# or who generate larger amounts of hazardous materials do not qualify as VSQGs and must arrange regular pick-up services for these materials.
Why? Hazardous materials generated by businesses or agencies must legally be disposed of in a safe and proper manner. Disposing of small amounts of hazardous materials is often difficult and expensive for a single group or business. By bringing your materials to the Continuous Clean Sweep Program, you save the $400-$600 mobilization fee, as well as other fees, charged by a hazardous materials disposal company. You also get great rates by being part of a collection program that includes households.
