Hazardous Waste Disposal for Businesses
The Dickinson Recycling Center’s program for Household Hazardous Waste (HHM) disposal was established for use by private citizens of Dickinson County. However, governing rules allow for usage of the HHM program by businesses that meet the following criteria:
1) Must not generate more than 220 pounds of hazardous waste per month and accumulate no more than 2,200 pounds of hazardous waste on site at any one time.
2) Must not generate no more than 2.2 pounds of acutely hazardous waste per month and does not accumulate more that 2.2 pounds.
Businesses must certify that they meet the above criteria in order to become a Certified Exempt Small Quantity Generator (CESQG) of hazardous waste before they will be allowed to bring their hazardous materials to the Recycling Center. A certification form can be found on the above subheading “CESQG Certification”. The certification form needs to be completed and returned to the Recycling Center for approval prior to a business bringing in their hazardous materials for disposal. Any questions that you may have on properly filling out the certification form can be addressed by contacting the Recycling Center.
CESQGs that dispose of their hazardous materials at the Recycling Center will be required to pay disposal costs associated with their waste. A price list of costs for specific items can be found on the above subheading “CESQG Pricing”. The prices shown are not inclusive of all types of waste but do give a sampling of disposal costs of common types of hazardous materials. If your type of waste is not included on the price list, you may contact the Recycling Center for a quote for disposal costs.
As part of your business qualifying to use the Recycling Center for hazardous material disposal, you must fill out the following form and present it at the time of your appointment to the Recycling Center’s representative.
