Who can be a potentially responsible party (PRP) at a hazardous waste site?

There are four classes of Superfund liable parties:

  • Current owners and operators of a facility
  • Past owners and operators of a facility at the time hazardous wastes were disposed
  • Generators and parties that arranged for the disposal or transport of the hazardous substances
  • Transporters of hazardous waste that selected the site where the hazardous substances were brought
