State Health Dept. Official: No point in collecting this stuff if they're just going to spread it around
Investigation finds shoddy disposal work marring oil cleanup, Ft. Walton Sun, June 24, 2010:
A mound of oily sand sits in an uncovered waste container in a parking lot at the crown jewel of Alabama's park system, Gulf State Park. Water from the previous night's storm drips out of the bin into a brown pool on the asphalt.
In Pensacola, along the road through Gulf Islands National Seashore, trash bags from the debris removal hang over the side of big storage bins.
A waste collection area dotted with numerous bins full of spill debris stands in what seems like an odd spot: smack in the middle of the tourist section in Gulf Shores, Ala., directly across the street from a seafood restaurant hungry for customers because of a lack of tourists.
