The Regional Collection Center (RCC) will only accept hazardous waste from a business determined to be a Very Small Quantity Generator (VSQG). A VSQG is a business that generates no more than 220 pounds of hazardous waste per month and stores no more than 2,200 pounds on site at any one time and less than 2.2 pounds of acutely hazardous waste on site at any time.
