Description Generators may accumulate and treat dangerous waste on site without a treatment, storage, and disposal permit if they meet certain on-site management requirements and treatment rules. This practice is called treatment by generator.

Small quantity generators may treat their own waste if they follow the guidance in this focus sheet.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
