Toxic Release Facilities are properties that contain and use toxic chemicals as part of their operations. Toxic Release facilities can cause environmental damage because of spills or leaks. They also pose a threat from toxic substances that may leak into groundwater supplies. Toxic release facilities are required by law to maintain certain emergency procedures for releasing hazardous waste materials if something goes wrong during their operation.
HazardHub maintains a national database of Toxic Release Facilities. Our API can tell you how close you are, the chemicals used at the facility, as we as whether those chemicals are carcinogenic.
