Small Quantity Generators of Hazardous Waste (SQG) 

INTRODUCTION

Many businesses, both large and small use hazardous materials in their processes. Many of these processes produce wastes. A portion of these wastes may be hazardous. The method a business manager employs to manage hazardous waste will have a direct influence on business profits and future liabilities for the property, the business, and its owners.

This webpage provides basic information to industry and public agencies that may be generators of small quantities of hazardous waste and to inform them of their responsibilities for proper hazardous waste management.

 HOW CAN I DETERMINE IF I HAVE HAZARDOUS WASTE?

All generators of waste materials are required by law to identify and evaluate their waste. Evaluating waste streams means determining whether or not the waste is hazardous.  Please see Fact Sheet below.   (Source: DEP)
