Business Hazardous Waste Collection Program Event October 7

Link to information about business hazardous waste collection

Loudoun County will host a hazardous waste collection event for businesses and other organizations on Thursday, October 7, 2021. Pre-registration is required to participate, and must be received no later than Friday, October 1. The program consists of two collection events per year where eligible hazardous waste generators may deliver toxic, reactive, ignitable and/or corrosive materials for proper disposal.  

The Loudoun County Business Hazardous Waste Program is offered for businesses and organizations located in Loudoun County that are considered “Very Small Quantity Generators (VSQGs)” or that do not exceed the following thresholds:

  • Less than 220 pounds of hazardous wastes are generated per calendar month;
  • Less than 2.2 pounds of acutely hazardous wastes are generated per calendar month;
  • Not more than 2,220 pounds (roughly five 55-gallon drums) of hazardous wastes are accumulated on-site at any time.

Hazardous waste disposal through this program typically results in reduced costs for participants as compared to establishing collection service directly with a hazardous waste management company. The business or organization pays for disposal of the material, but does not pay for the waste collection or mobilization.

Visit loudoun.gov/bhwp for registration forms and event information, or call 703-771-5514.
