Ramsey County’s VSQG collection program

Very Small Quantity Generators (VSQGs) are allowed to deliver their own waste in their own vehicle to a licensed VSQG collection program. This allows eligible participants to regularly dispose of small quantities of waste rather than accumulate it over a long time period. Although program participants pay disposal charges, the program is intended to provide a convenient, cost-effective disposal option.

Eligible businesses

  • Must be located in Ramsey County.
  • Must be currently licensed or in the process of being licensed as a VSQG or one-time generator.

Examples of acceptable waste

  • Aerosols.
  • Batteries.
  • Fluorescent lamps & ballasts.
  • Lab pack wastes (corrosives, poisons, pesticides, flammables).
  • Latex and oil based paints.
  • Vehicle fluids, like fuels, antifreeze, used oil and related wastes.
