New Ohio Haz-Mat containers to aid in meth lab cleanup



Published: Mon, September 9, 2013 @ 1:54 p.m.

NORTH CANTON, Ohio (AP) — The state attorney general says new hazardous material containers at five sites around Ohio will help authorities more quickly clean up methamphetamine labs they bust.

Attorney General Mike DeWine’s announcement today in North Canton comes amid a spike in the number of meth labs seized by authorities in Ohio this year. His office says law enforcement agencies have reported a record-high 770 lab seizures during this federal fiscal year.

DeWine says the new containers will help to reduce the time required to clean up those labs and the costs associated with those efforts. The containers are in secure, monitored areas in Athens, Canton, Columbus, Lebanon and Ottawa.

DeWine has said the number of labs has apparently increased, and law enforcement agencies are more aggressively targeting them.
