In chapter 3, you are introduced to different ways of identifying hazmat generators. Define the four (4) different generators and analyze them. In addition, utilize the Internet and locate some companies in your local area that fall into these categories, with a brief introduction of the company in your post. 


The four different generators of hazardous waste are: Nonregulated handler (NRH), Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators (CESQG), Small Quantity Generators (SQG), and Large Quantity Generators (LQG).

A Nonregulated handler is a business in general from my understanding.  They may or may not generate hazardous waste, but must document the determination of their findings of such (something I did not know).

A Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator is a site that “generates no more than 100 kilograms (kg) or 220 pounds (lb) per month of hazardous waste, or 1 kg (2.2 lb) of acute hazardous waste per month (P-List)”(VanGuilder, 2012).  Becoming this category gives this site guidelines to follow in documenting their hazardous waste, limit on accumulation amount, handling guidelines of the waste, and transportation guidelines.

A Small Quantity Generator is a site that “generates more than 100 kg and no more than 1,000 kg of non-acute hazardous waste per month, or no more than 1 kg of acute hazardous wastes per month” ().  The same general guidelines apply to the SQG as do the CESQG, however differ in amounts and stringency of documentation.  This group must obtain a USEPA Generator ID.  They also must dispose of their material within a shorter amount of time, and only allowed to use a hazardous waste shipping company.  Oddly enough, they can keep their material onsite longer if their disposal site is further than 200 miles (270 days), if closer the time period is less (180 day).

The final generator discussed is the Large Quantity Generator (LQG).  This hazardous waste generation group is a site that “generate ≥ 1,000 kg of hazardous waste per month, or greater than 1 kg acute hazardous waste per month, and stores more than 1,000 kg of hazardous waste and more than 1 kg of acute hazardous waste” (VanGuilder, 2012).  This group has only 90 days to hold their hazardous waste, regardless of the distance of the disposal facility.  They also follow an even more stringent documentation policy, as well as train personnel in hazardous waste management.  They also must maintain proof that they have done such training for a three-year period.  They must have emergency plans dealing with evacuations and containment of the hazardous waste.   


I performed a google search for hazardous waste generators list and came up with a ‘List of Large Quantity Generators in the United States from the EPA.  I found that the company I work for produces RCRA Tons of 323.81 and the company that is next to my site RCRA Tons generated 1498.53.  As far as putting names, I’m not too sure if I can do that with the nondisclosure agreement that I signed.  Even though the information is public knowledge, I prefer not to for that fact. It was interesting to find the data on my location, as well as the one neighboring me (EPA, 2001).


In chapter 3, you are introduced to different ways of identifying hazmat generators. Define the four (4) different generators and analyze them. In addition, utilize the Internet and locate some companies in your local area that fall into these categories, with a brief introduction of the company in your post. 

The four different generator are Nonregulated handler (NRH) ; Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators (CESQG) ; Small Quantity Generators (SQG) ; Large Quantity Generators (LQG)

The Nonregulated handler (NRH) represents an important regulatory status used by regulators and compliance inspectors. (VanGuilder, C 2012) In the case of a compliance inspection records should be kept for all companies and businesses whether they generate hazardous waste or not. They must document their hazardous waste determinations. (VanGuilder, C 2012) Note that the USEPA doesn’t list this as a regulated generator category.

Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators (CESQG) produces less than 220 pounds of hazardous waste or 2.2 pounds of acute waster per month. A CESSQG can’t store greater than 2200 pounds hazardous waste and 2.2 pounds of acute waste per month. If it goes over these limites that the facility will be inspected as a Small Quantity Generator (SQG). It is very important to double check written permits to ensure that the hazardous waste is disposed in an on-site facility or ensure delivery to an authorized off-site facility. Written permits also come into play when the CESQG can’t self-transport its waste to an authorized facility. They must use a licensed transporter.

Small Quantity Generators (SQG) generates more than 100kg and no more than 1000 kg of non-acute hazardous waster (VanGuilder, C 2012) There are regulatory requirements for SGQs. Some of them are listed below: SQGs must make and document hazardous waste determinations; they must obtain an USEPA Generator ID number by contacting the appropriate USEPA regional office representing their state; they must arrange for the shipment of their hazardous waste using a licensed hazardous waster transporter; must have their hazardous wastes shipped off site within 180 days of the date of generation, if the ultimate disposal facility is no farther than 200 miles away. There is other stuff on the checklist, this is just a few. 

Large Quantity Generators (LQG) generate more than 1000 kg of hazardous waster per month, or greater than 1kg acute hazardous waster per month, and stores more than 1000 kg of hazardous waster and more than 1kg of acute hazardous waste. (VanGuilder, C 2012) They also have a list of additional requirements provided by the EPA. The biggest thing is the LQG has only 90 days to ship a waste off site, as opposed to 180/270 days for a SQG. 

In my local area I wasn’t able to find any companies that fall into the LQG or NRH, but I was able to find an example of each other one:

SQG – Flowserve US Incorportated – Flowserve which in in Chesapeake, VA They manufacture and service fluid motion control solutions for the world’s most critical applications. 

CESQG – Ruhrpumpen, Inc, which is in Hampton, VA They are an innovative and efficient pump technology company that offers highly-engineered and standard pumping solutions for the oil and gas, power generation, industrial, chemical and water markets.
