This policy supersedes EPA's 1993 guidance on de micromis settlements and doubles the level previously identified for small party protection. This means that EPA's policy is to not pursue parties whose contribution is equal to or less than: (1) 0.002% of total volume or 110 gallons (such as two 55-gallon drums) or 200 pounds of materials containing hazardous substances, whichever is greater, or (2) 0.02% of total volume, where a contributor sent only Municipal Solid Waste (MSW).
