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.

Conditionally Exempt Generator (CEG)

Conditionally Exempt Generators (CEGs): The CEG category is designated for hazardous waste generators who produce the least amount of hazardous waste. CEGs must comply with basic requirements for making waste determinations, notification, hazardous waste management and storage, and ensuring that their hazardous wastes are disposed of appropriately (many disposal methods are available to CEGs).

Compliance Inspections

Inspections of generators of hazardous waste are required by State law, to protect human health and the environment. A typical inspection includes a walk-through and viewing of waste generating and storage areas, and review of documentation including shipping documents (manifests and bills of lading), contingency plans, and other hazardous waste documents.

What Regulations Apply to me?

All Vermont generators are required to determine if their waste is subject to regulation as hazardous waste. In Vermont, if you generate hazardous waste, you are required to obtain an EPA Identification Number from the DEC's Hazardous Waste Program.

Petroleum Clean-Up Fund

Established under the authority of 10 V.S.A Chapter 59 Section 1941, the Petroleum Cleanup Fund (PCF) was created to pay, subject to available funding, for certain uninsured costs for the cleanup and restoration of contaminated soil and groundwater caused by the releases of petroleum from aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) and underground storage tanks (USTs), and for the compensation of third party claims for injury and damage caused by such a release.
