The City's Household Hazardous Waste Program offers assistance to local businesses that qualify as a Very Small Quantity Generator (VSQG) of hazardous waste. To qualify, your business must be located in Thousand Oaks and generate less than 220 pounds (approximately 27 gallons) of hazardous waste per month, or a maximum of 2.2 pounds of acutely hazardous waste per month. Businesses that generate more than these amounts are required to use a licensed hazardous waste hauler to manifest and transport their waste. Our appointment-based program is affordable, convenient, safe, and legal.
