Center is also available to member town businesses that do not exceed DEP’s threshold for Very Small Quantity Generators (VSQGs) and generate less than 220 pounds (approximately 27 gallons) of ignitable, corrosive, reactive, toxic, or hazardous waste or waste oil per month and no acutely hazardous waste. Businesses are required to pre-register via email or phone. Business disposal fees will be based on the materials being managed.
