Loudoun County Hosts Business Hazardous Waste Collection Event May 6

Link to information about the business hazardous waste program

Loudoun County will host a hazardous waste collection event for businesses and organizations Thursday, May 6, 2021. Pre-registration is required to participate, and must be received no later than Friday, April 30, 2021. The county holds two collection events per year where eligible hazardous waste generators may deliver toxic, reactive, ignitable and/or corrosive materials for proper disposal. The fall 2021 event will be scheduled for October.  

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

  • Generate less than 220 pounds of hazardous wastes per calendar month.
  • Generate less than 2.2 pounds of acutely hazardous wastes per calendar month.
  • Accumulate 2,220 pounds or less (roughly five 55-gallon drums) of hazardous wastes at any time.

Hazardous waste disposal through this program typically results in reduced costs for businesses as compared to establishing collection service directly with a hazardous waste management company. Loudoun County covers the fees for contractor setup, material handling and hauling. Participants will only be required to deliver their materials to the event and pay the disposal fee.

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