Hazardous Waste Collection Program for Small Businesses

As a business owner, operator or employee, you may be generating waste materials that can harm people and the environment.  Hazardous waste must be stored properly and disposed of at a designated hazardous waste management or recycling facility.  It should never be allowed to evaporate, disposed with trash, poured into a septic tank, down storm drains or onto the ground. 

Businesses that generate small amounts of hazardous waste, usually 25 gallons or less in a month, can use the Hazardous Waste Collection Program for Small Businesses.
