The purpose of this site is to provide Vermont businesses that generate limited amounts of hazardous waste with information they need about handling hazardous wastes in their operations. The site is based on the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation's Conditionally Exempt Generator (CEG) Handbook: A Hazardous Waste Management Guide for Smaller Vermont Businesses, and includes quizzes for users to test their knowledge, as well as many useful links.
The Vermont CEG On-Line Course is a collaborative effort between the Vermont Small Business Development Center and the Department of Environmental Conservation's Environmental Assistance Office and Waste Management Division. Funded through a grant by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, this project was prepared under contract by DSM and Blair Technologies. This web site (www.vtceg.org) is hosted and maintained on the DEC server but is not part of the Department's web site. To report problems, please click here.
