Very Small Quantity Generator Program (VSQG)

According to Colorado law, CESQGs are not allowed to dispose of their hazardous waste onsite. The goal of the Eagle County VSQG Program is to assist local businesses in disposing of their hazardous wastes in a safe, timely, and more economical manner. This also reduces or eliminates improper disposal of CESQG waste in the Eagle County landfill.

CESQGs are subject to federal and state regulations for proper disposal of hazardous waste. CESQGs of hazardous waste are permitted to generate a) no more than 100 kilograms (220 lbs or 25 gallons) of hazardous waste and b) no more than 1 kilogram (about 2.2 pounds or less than a quart) of acutely hazardous waste. They can’t store more than 1000 kg of hazardous waste onsite at any given time.
