PCB Cleanup and Disposal Guidance in Memoranda Issued by EPA Headquarters

This page contains copies of memoranda issued by EPA headquarters (HQs) that contain guidance. While these memoranda were each directed to other EPA offices in response to a need for interpretation, the responses are broadly applicable to the regulated public. The interpretation presented in a given memorandum may have been partially superceded by subsequent rulemakings. However, memoranda that have been entirely superceded are not listed.
