According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, a VSQG of hazardous material is any company that generates less than 220 pounds (approximately 27 gallons, or half of a 55-gallon drum) of hazardous material on a monthly basis and does not exceed this quantity in any given month. VSQGs should also never accumulate more than 2,205 pounds of hazardous material on site at any time (approximately 265 gallons, or not quite 5 full 55-gallon barrels). In order to maintain compliance, and to avoid fines, it is important that companies remain within the VSQG guidelines.
