Shows like Breaking Bad and The Wire have brought more awareness to the danger of illegally manufactured drugs. These shows illustrate that drug labs may turn up in houses, apartments, sheds, trailers, motel rooms, and even motor vehicles. The government’s health and safety department have deemed that the illegal manufacture of psychoactive drugs, primarily methamphetamine, is a major health and safety issue while the disposal of illegal drug lab waste pose a significant environmental threat to the community.
Contaminants at these sites may be highly volatile organic solvents and semi-volatile organic compounds, to highly corrosive inorganic acids and bases. Because of the dangers posed by drug lab waste it is important to hire a licensed and certified hazardous removals company like Burns Environmental Services to safely decontaminate and clean these affected buildings.
Since 1995 alone, DTSC’s Drug Lab Removal Program has funded the removal and disposal of 18000 illegal drug labs and drug lab waste.
