How many Chemgon containers can I fill each month and still be considered a Small Quantity Generator (SQG)?


In order to be considered an SQG, you must not generate more than 220 lbs. of waste each month. Therefore, you can fill ten (10) Chemgon containers each month. Fixer weighs about (8) lbs. per gallon, so (25) gallons of fixer is the approximate threshold. Since fixer is mixed in equal parts with developer (non hazardous liquid waste) you can utilize (10) Chemgon containers for a total of 50 gallons of fixer/developer each month and still be considered an SQG. Small Quantity Generators are usually exempt from obtaining a treatment permit.
