Small Business Hazardous Waste
In partnership with the San Bernardino County Hazardous Materials Division, the City continually seeks ways to expand methods for hazardous waste collection for small businesses. While Big Bear Disposal no longer handles Small Business Hazardous Waste, please contact the County of San Bernardino at the following link for further information on Small Business Hazardous Waste removal:
Businesses generating hazardous waste on a regular basis must:
    • Register with the San Bernardino County Fire Department at (909) 387-3080 as a hazardous waste generator
    • Obtain an EPA ID # from the State by calling 1-800-618-6942
