We've been requested to do a lot of PCB testing in paints recently, especially at utility plants. Some of these paints contain well over 50 ppm PCBs, some well into the percent level. While there is an exemption in New York State for disposal of building materials that contain lead-based paint, there is no such exemption for PCB-containing wastes. This results in some significant disposal costs.
Has anyone else come across this issue and seen any solutions?
