Program Information & Fees

Business Hazardous Waste Program Fees

There is no fee to register for the Business Hazardous Waste Program. However, a business will pay a fee based on the type and weight of each hazardous waste material brought to a collection event. The fee is paid directly to the Contractor. The business or organization can pay by check or credit card.

The cost to a typical Business Hazardous Waste participant will be approximately one quarter the cost of paying for disposal through a hazardous waste management firm.
