Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)

Due to measurement of low levels of PCBs discharging from the historic Raggatt landfill and public concerns raised all publicly available reports in respect of this matter are available on this webpage.

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are man-made organic compounds which pose risks to human/animal health, such as cancer and reproduction problems, due to their toxic and bio-accumulative properties. Their use in production has been illegal in the UK since 1987.
