Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)

Before starting work that involves handling and/or disposing of PCBs or PCB-containing items, SUBMIT TWO COPIES OF YOUR PROCEDURE FOR HANDLING, PACKAGING, SHIPPING, AND DISPOSING PCBS. Clearly and accurately identify and mark all PCB items and containers with PCBs prior to removal from the campus. Ensure that the manifest is properly completed and signed.

PROVIDE ALL HAZARDOUS WASTE MANIFESTS TO THE UNIVERSITY PROJECT MANAGER FOR SIGNATURE, so that a Catholic University representative may sign as the generator. Do not sign the manifest on the behalf of the University as the generator.

Dispose PCBs and PCB items only in an approved incinerator or chemical waste landfill.
