    Justice Reed

    Not all types of hazardous waste idiot. Hazardous
    waste such as acidic waste can be treated (solidified)
    with lime and disposed of in a sanitary landfill
    legally (if I am not mistaken). In the Detroit news
    article, they said some waste was treated with lime and
    disposed of in a sanitary landfill. The Detroit news
    article had a very negative tone to their landfill
    dumping. Different hazardous waste requires different
    treatment and disposal.

    When you throw out your old
    D cell batteries and used oil filters, do you
    package them and ship them DOT hazardous to the
    appropriate facility, or do you dump them in the trash? The
    D-Cells should not be dumped in the landfill. However, it
    may be legal. Probably one of the many loopholes put
    in the regulations by industry.

    Since, that
    Detroit article 2 weeks ago I have seen nothing else on
    the matter except they found some PCBs in the
    facility that were improperly sent to them by the
    generator and they are taking care of it. The FBI and EPA
    are investigating, did they find anything? The rest
    of the story is not out.

    And with your
    smartass post, I pray that you don't work for USL, the
    EPA, or any other environmental company.
