Oil continues to be dumped alongside “regular waste” in Florida landfill NOT designated for hazardous materials; Will extend hours to bring in more (VIDEO)


Oil Related Waste Continues to Arrive at Spring Hill Landfill, CBS Channel 2 WCTV Tallahassee, June 22, 2010:

The Spring Hill Landfill is... receiving the oil-related waste. ...

"The loads come in and we deposit them with our regular waste, they come out and the tar balls are all bagged in sand so they come lined to the landfill in the container and they're also double-bagged, the sand and the tar balls."

While the landfill is only handling 15-to-20 loads of the material a day, Massey believes that amount will fluctuate throughout the crisis.

Waste Management officials are considering extending the Spring Hill Landfill's operating hours as necessary to accommodate the extra oil waste.
