What is the most current, DOE approved, treatment of PCBs?
PCBs can be found in electrical insulation used in transformers
and other high power devices. If I had to find the proper way to dispose of
them, I would call the Environmental Protection Agency for information on
federal PCB disposal regulations, and would probably also have to check with
state, local, county, etc. for applicable hazardous waste disposal
regulations. This is a very general answer, I know, but I personally do not
work for DOE and so cannot answer specifically about what they do with PCBs.
