Region 5 Greener Cleanup Interim Policy

The goal of U.S. EPA Region 5's Greener Cleanup Interim Policy is to enhance the environmental benefits of federal cleanup programs by promoting technologies and practices that are sustainable. This policy applies to all Superfund cleanups including those performed by potentially responsible parties, states or tribes through cooperative agreements, EPA and/or the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer contractors, and federal facilities; Resource Conservation and Recovery Act corrective action cleanups performed under EPA oversight; EPA-led leaking underground storage tank cleanups; and cleanup work implemented through EPA's Brownfields Grant Program.
