The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a national risk-based disposal approval for PCB remediation waste. This approval, which has also been posted on EPA's website, allows USWAG members who generate PCB remediation waste with concentrations of <50 ppm PCB to dispose of those wastes in non-TSCA disposal facilities.
