Disposal

Thousands of contaminated sites exist in the US because of reckless dumping and storage of toxic chemicals and hazardous waste. Superfund was a program developed to clean up these sites. The Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Information System (CERCLIS) is the official database that contains information on hazardous waste site assessments and cleanup from 1983 to the present. These two sites allow you to find out if sites have been studied or cleaned up under the Superfund program.
