Business Customers

Small quantity business generators are eligible to participate in the Nashua Region Household Hazardous Waste program. Please read the following carefully to determine if your business is eligible.

Is my business a Small Quantity Generator?
Your business is a small quantity generator (SQG) if it generates in each and every calendar month:
• Less than 100 kilograms or 220 pounds of non-acute hazardous waste;
• Less than 1 kilogram or 2.2 pounds of an acutely hazardous waste; or
• Less than 100 kilograms or 220 pounds of any residue or contaminated soil, waste, or other debris resulting from the cleanup of a spill of any acutely hazardous waste.

If you have questions about whether your business is a SQG, please contact NH Dept. of Environmental Services Small Quantity Generator Program

If your business qualifies as a small quantity generator, please read this fact sheet about participating in a household hazardous waste collection event. 

What will it cost to participate?
Businesses participating in the Household Hazardous Waste program will be charged directly by the hazardous waste vendor. Costs are based on the type and quantity of waste you are disposing of. The Nashua Regional Planning Commission does not set pricing for business participants.

How do I register to attend an event?
SQG business participants must contact Mason Twombly (603.417.6570 x 6575 or masont@nashuarpc.org) at least 2 weeks prior to the event to pre-register. This will allow time for you to obtain the proper paperwork and information needed to participate.  If you arrive at a collection event without pre-registering you will not be able to participate.
