Free Lead Poisoning Hazard Information

Do you want some helpful government literature? If so, there is a ton of it available for free. The following list is just a partial listing of some stuff you can get. I built this list from a helpful EPA web page . You can order 15 of the documents online right from there. If you don't have Web access, then order by mail. Call 800-424-LEAD for complete mailing instructions. Here is what they will tell you to do:

  • If you would like documents sent to you via U.S. Mail, please provide your name, address, and daytime phone number.
  • Make a list of what publications you want.
  • Please limit your document request to 15 individual documents.
