Accepted Wastes and Costs


The cost of disposal depends on the type and amount of the waste you have. The fees charged are pro-rated on a per unit basis, and do not include other related costs that the County may incur. For the most part, these fees will be considerably lower than that of a licensed commercial hazardous waste hauler.

Wastes accepted and associated costs are listed in the VSQG Fee Schedule. Please note that the container size of the waste must not be larger than 5-gallons total.
