Part 262 Generator Requirements

Hazardous Waste Generators

Please Help Our Firm with a Hazardous Waste Generator Notification Requirement:  

A hazardous waste generator is any person or site whose processes and actions create hazardous waste (see 40 CFR 260.10). 

Generators are divided into three categories based upon the quantity of waste they produce:

  1. Large Quantity Generators (LQGs) generate 1,000 kilograms per month or more of hazardous waste, more than 1 kilogram per month of acutely hazardous waste, or more than 100 kilograms per month of acute spill residue or soil.
  2. Small Quantity Generators (SQGs) generate more than 100 kilograms, but less than 1,000 kilograms, of hazardous waste per month.
  3. Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators (CESQGs) generate 100 kilograms or less per month of hazardous waste, or 1 kilogram or less per month of acutely hazardous waste, or less than 100 kilograms per month of acute spill residue or soil.

Each class of generator must comply with its own set of requirements. For more information these requirements, please see the attached Generator Summary Chart
