The SWA does not in general accept hazardous waste from other government agencies simply because most agencies have larger quantities than the SWA VSQG program is designed to handle; and have the resources and staff to arrange and manage disposal.
OPTIONS FOR WASTE DISPOSAL
The SWA can assist with finding appropriate disposal and resources; and has various disposal contracts in place that can be ’piggybacked’ in many cases.
Local, State, and Federal agencies are responsible for managing and disposing of their hazardous wastes no differently than than any other business. In fact government agencies are often some of the largest generators of hazardous waste when multiple departments and facilities are aggregated.
