Potential Landfill Disposal for Hazardous Waste

Potential Landfill Disposal for Hazardous Waste:
A business must qualify as a Very Small Quantity Generator (VSQG) to potentially use the District's landfill. A VSQG can be a large industrial manufacturer or a small shop. VSQG status is achieved by producing less than 220 lbs. (100 kg) of hazardous waste per month, including a maximum of 2.2 lbs. (1kg.) of acutely hazardous waste. If a business generates more than this amount, they are required by law to use a licensed hazardous waste hauler to manifest and transport their waste. This waste cannot be disposed of in Bartholomew County Solid Waste Management District's landfill.

For landfill disposal of any waste that is potentially hazardous you MUST contact our District Director, Heather Siesel at 812.376.2614 or by email at heather.siesel@bartholomew.in.gov prior to disposal.
