One fourth of Americans live within four miles of a Superfund site - uncontrolled or abandoned places that contain some of the nation’s most toxic waste. Working to protect public health and the varied environments of local communities, these groups seek to hold corporations and the government accountable. They work to clean up hazardous, nuclear, and toxic waste, while supporting positive policy changes to reduce and eliminate their use.
