The DEEP has several programs that work to ensure the proper management – handling, use, and disposal – of materials including pesticides, mercury, PCBs, and petroleum products. Through a number of different mechanisms – outreach and education, product handling efforts and phase outs, training, and regulatory activity – the Department is working to develop better stewardship of these materials to protect environmental quality and public safety.
