PH Logo Ramsey County's Very Small Quantity Generator (VSQG) Collection Program


Waste disposal might just have gotten a little bit simpler for Ramsey County's VSQGs! A VSQG collection program, located at Bay West, is now available. Using a VSQG collection program allows your business to transport your hazardous waste in your company vehicle to the site, bypassing the use of a licensed hazardous waste transporter - saving you $$.

Here's how it works.

  • Business must be located in Ramsey County and be currently licensed or in the process of being licensed as a VSQG or one-time generator.  Need help with licensing?
  • Waste is accepted, for a fee, at Bay West's permanent location - 5 Empire Drive, St. Paul, MN, 55103

Prior appointments are strongly encouraged, call 651.783.6389 or 651.783.6392 to schedule an appointment during the following hours of operation: 

    • December – March, Fridays, 11 am – 6 pm
    • April – October, Tuesday - Friday, 11 am – 6 pm
    • Year-round, Saturday and times outside the operational hours by appointment only

Examples of acceptable wastes include:

  • 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
