What is Universal Waste?

As defined by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “hazardous waste can be categorized as universal waste if it is commonly generated by a wide variety of types of establishments…”

Retrofit Environmental specializes in identifying, handling and recycling a wide variety of hazardous materials, including universal waste. We regularly process universal wastes including:

  • Batteries
  • Pesticides
  • Mercury-Containing Equipment
  • Lamps
  • Aerosol Cans

Am I a Small or Large Quantity Generator?

The federal universal waste regulations identify waste generators as either a Very Small Quantity Generator, Small Quantity Generator or a Large Quantity Generator. Whether you are a Very Small Quantity Generator, a Small Quantity Generator or a Large Quantity Generator, you may have a need for a pre-paid recycling solution for small volumes of your waste throughout your waste program.

The differences between Small Quantity and Large Quantity Generators include:

  • Very Small Quantity Generator: Accumulate 100 kg or less per month of hazardous waste, or 1 kg or less per month of acutely hazardous waste
  • Small Quantity Generator: Accumulates less than 5,000 kg of universal waste
  • Large Quantity Generator: Accumulates 5,000 kg or more of universal waste
