Generator Fees

The Hazardous Waste Generator Registration Fee is an annual fee and registration requirement for all generators of hazardous waste. Act 15, 10 VSA Section 6608(f) states:
All generators of regulated hazardous waste, shall register with the secretary and pay an annual fee specified in section 2822 of Title 3.

Large Quantity Generator (LQG)

Large Quantity Generators (LQGs) LQGs generate the most waste and are subject to most stringent requirements. LQGs must also comply with specific requirements for waste testing and recordkeeping, more stringent storage time limits, more stringent employee training and contingency planning requirements.

Small Quantity Generator (SQG)

Small Quantity Generators (SQGs) SQGs are subject to more stringent requirements than CEGs, but less stringent than LQGs. SQGs must also comply with requirements for recordkeeping, waste inventory and inspections, personnel training, emergency preparedness and prevention, facility closure, and more stringent on-site waste storage requirements. SQG requirements are specified under VHWMR § 7-307.
