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.
