SQG Information

The Dangerous Waste Regulations, Chapter 173-303 WAC, use the term Small Quantity Generator to describe individuals and businesses that generate and/or accumulate dangerous waste in small amounts. These generators are conditionally exempt from many state regulatory requirements.

Activities that may generate dangerous waste include auto body repair, printing, dry cleaning, dentistry, and medical care.

Many wastes contain certain chemicals or have properties that make them dangerous to human health and the environment.

The Dangerous Waste Regulations describe a process called “designation” that determines whether a waste is dangerous. Wastes are categorized based on the characteristics or criteria they exhibit, or if they are found on a specific list in the Dangerous Waste Regulations.
