RCRA Topics

The compliance monitoring requirements for generators involve:

Large Quantity Generators

Large scale hazardous waste management facilities generate a majority of the nation’s hazardous waste. Large quantity generators (LQG) are defined as those facilities that generate greater than 1,000 kg of hazardous waste per calendar month (approximately 2,200 lbs) or greater than 1 kg of acutely hazardous waste per calendar month (approximately 2.2 lbs).

Small Quantity Generators

Small quantity generators (SQG) are defined as those facilities that generate between 100 kg (approximately 220 lbs) and 1,000 kg of hazardous waste per calendar month and accumulate less than 6,000 kg (approximately 13,200 lbs) of hazardous waste at any time.
