 Information for generators of hazardous waste
  Except for household hazardous waste, all hazardous waste must be managed in compliance with hazardous waste generator requirements, which vary depending on the amounts of hazardous waste that is generated and stored at the site.
  An LQG generates the most waste, and is the most highly-regulated type of hazardous waste generator.
 Non-RCRA Hazardous Waste
 Permitting and Reporting Requirements for the Collection of Household Hazardous Waste, Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator Hazardous Waste, Electronic Waste, Pharmaceutical Waste and Sharps
 Pharmaceutical Stakeholders Group
  DEEP is moving forward with establishing regulations concerning the handling of pharmaceuticals and has established a stakeholders working group to assist in their development.
 RCRA Help!
  If you generate hazardous waste, there are hazardous waste management requirements that apply to you.
  An SQG generates more hazardous waste than a Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator (CESQG) and therefore has more hazardous waste requirements to comply with than a CESQG, but fewer requirements than a Large Quantity Generator (LQG).
  The transportation of hazardous waste and non-RCRA-Hazardous Waste (Connecticut Regulated Waste) is subject to special requirements in Connecticut.
