Do I qualify to use the Environmental Depot?

The CSWD Environmental Depot is open only to households and to Chittenden County businesses that qualify as a Conditionally Exempt Generator (CEG).

The State of Vermont defines a Conditionally Exempt Generator (CEG) as a business that generates less than:

  • 220 pounds of hazardous waste per month; OR
  • 2.2 pounds of acutely hazardous waste per month; OR
  • 220 pounds per month of any residue or contaminated soil, waste, or other debris resulting from the cleanup of any acutely hazardous waste; OR
  • A total accumulation at any one time of 2,200 pounds of hazardous waste.

Some examples of common CEGs include: artists, auto repair shops, contractors, dry cleaners, exterminators, farms, painters, printers, property managers, and schools. If you think your business may qualify as a CEG, call the Environmental Depot (865-4663) to make an appointment. Disposal fees vary depending on the type and quantity of waste.
