The Regulation of theMinister of the Environment of 2021 allows for the removal of the waste status from reclaimed asphalt. However, such a material must meet guidelines regarding, among others, the content of organic pollutants, in particular polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Unfortunately, the use of material without analysis may involve a number of threats to existing ecosystems, including aquatic ecosystems. In the arcticle the authors present the results of the analysis of the leachability of organic compounds into the aquatic ecosystem. The results of testing samples of reclaimed asphalt for 10 streets in the city of Płock are presented. The research were carried out to analyze chemical properties that could pose a potential threat to the environment.
