Dangerous Waste Disposal for Small Quantity Generators

​Kitsap County Small Quantity Generator (SQG) Program

The SQG program helps qualifying businesses and organizations follow dangerous waste regulations. It offers affordable disposal appointments and optional site visits.

Most businesses and organizations generate some form of dangerous waste - waste that's potentially harmful to our health and environment. Use the SQG Program to safely and affordably dispose of small quantities of dangerous waste.


Steps for using the Kitsap County SQG program

Step 1: Complete online form

Submit the online inventory form to request a disposal appointment. If you need help organizing and identifying your waste, use the form to request free on-site technical assistance.

Contact Kitsap1 at help@kitsap1.com or 360-337-5777 if you need help.


Step 2: Schedule appointment

After you submit a form, program staff will contact you within five business days to schedule your appointment or free on-site technical assistance. Collections are held twice a month.


​Step 3: Deliver your waste safely

We do not accept items or amounts not included on your inventory form. Prepare for your appointment. 

• Keep waste types separate. Do not mix. 

• Label and transport waste in closed, leak-proof containers. 

• Secure waste in trunk or truck bed to minimize risk to people. 

• Comply with U.S. Department of Transportation regulations for hauling hazardous materials. Refer to Hazardous Materials Regulations | PHMSA (dot.gov)

Deliver at the scheduled time to Kitsap County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility: 5551 SW Imperial Way, Bremerton. The facility is located off Highway 3 across from the Bremerton National Airport in the Industrial Park.

More Information

What businesses or organizations have dangerous waste?

Dangerous waste is more common than you think. Dangerous waste has one or more of the following properties: toxic, ignitable, corrosive, or reactive. 

Businesses, agencies, and organizations (including churches and non-profits) are required to determine whether the waste they generate is dangerous. They must also handle dangerous waste safely and dispose of it properly. Learn more about dangerous waste.


Who can use the program?

Businesses, agencies, and organizations (including churches and non-profits) that generate:

  • less than 220 pounds of dangerous waste, or 
  • less than 2.2 pounds of certain kinds of highly toxic waste in any month, or
  • accumulate less than 2200 lbs. of dangerous waste on site at any time. 

Determine your generator status and learn which rules you must follow.
