Expert PCB Management Services for Safe  PCB Handling 

Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) are synthetic organic compounds that were widely used for their heat resistance and stability in various industrial applications from the 1930s to the 1970s.

Despite their versatility, PCBs present substantial risks to both human health and the environment.

YORK1 employs specialized procedures for the removal of PCBs from buildings, including meticulous inspection and removal of PCB-containing materials, followed by careful disposal or treatment according to environmental regulations.


Here are a breakdown of what pcbs concerns are:


  • Health Hazards: PCBs have been linked to serious health issues, including skin problems, liver damage, and disruptions to the immune and endocrine systems. Prolonged exposure to PCBs can lead to an elevated risk of cancer, particularly affecting organs like the liver.
  • Environmental Impact: PCBs are highly persistent and can linger in the environment for decades, spreading through air, water, and soil. They accumulate in the fatty tissues of animals, entering the food chain and affecting wildlife and humans who consume contaminated organisms.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Due to their harmful nature, many countries have enacted strict regulations on the production, usage, and disposal of PCBs. Proper removal is essential to adhere to these regulations and prevent further environmental contamination.
  • Property Value and Safety: Properties containing PCB-containing materials may experience decreased value due to potential health and environmental liabilities. Removing PCBs ensures a safer living or working environment, protecting occupants' health.
