Waste Storage

Q: HOW LONG CAN I STORE MY HAZARDOUS WASTE?

A: That depends on how much you generate during one calendar month. Generally speaking, the storage requirements for a specific generator of hazardous waste can be confined to the following categories and criteria.

* CONDITIONALLY EXEMPT SMALL QUANTITY GENERATORS

Generators of less than 220 lbs (100 kilograms) of RCRA hazardous waste per calendar month, or less than 2.2 lbs (1 kg) of acutely hazardous waste (i.e., hazardous waste with a p-code) in one calendar month are considered conditionally-exempt small quantity generators (CESQGs). These facilities additionally are limited to accumulating no more than 2,200 lbs (1,000 kg) of hazardous waste at any time.

* SMALL QUANTITY GENERATORS

Generators of less than 2,200 lbs (1,000 kilograms) of RCRA hazardous waste per calendar month, or less than 2.2 lbs (1 kg) of acutely hazardous waste (i.e., hazardous waste with a p-code) in one calendar month are considered small quantity generators (SQGs). These facilities are additionally limited to accumulating no more than 13,200 lbs. (6,000 kg) of hazardous waste at any time.

* LARGE QUANTITY GENERATORS – 90-day storage limit from time of generation

Generators of greater than 2,200 lbs (1,000 kilograms) of RCRA hazardous waste per calendar month, or more than 2.2 lbs (1 kg) of acutely hazardous waste (i.e., hazardous waste with a p-code) in one calendar month are considered large quantity generators (LQGs). These facilities are additionally limited to accumulating no more than 2,200 lbs (1,000 kg) of hazardous waste at any time. Further requirements for LQGs include the preparation and implementation of an emergency response plan, training for response personnel, and submission of an annual hazardous waste report.
