The MPCA, the federal Environmental Protection Agency, and other federal agencies have jurisdiction and extensive knowledge for hazardous waste cleanup or hazardous waste transportation.
For a given hazardous waste site, call the MPCA to find out what is being done, what can be done, and who is doing it.
In some cases the City can also clean up old dumps or other long-standing hazardous wastes using the same type of procedure as for demolishing a vacant building.
