Generator Status and Business Waste

Generator status is the degree of regulation a business must follow depending on the amount of dangerous waste produced by a business in a given month. There are three levels of generator status in Washington state: Small Quantity Generators (SQG), Medium Quantity Generators (MQG), Large Quantity Generators (LQG).
