Abstract:
As a result of the health problems at the Caldwell Systems, Inc. incinerator in Caldwell County, the Environmental Protection Agency is launching a nationwide “strike force.” This will trigger a nationwide review of incinerators and their effect on local populations. The NC case could be the case that leads to radical changes in hazardous waste management. A strategy calling for waste reduction and recycling is favored by experts as the hazardous waste totals are increasing nationwide.

Governor Jim Martin claims that he had no proof or authority to shut down the Caldwell County incinerator responsible for environmental and public health violations. The evidence suggests the governor and state officials could have acted and chose not to. The federal government has launched a comprehensive health study in response to the incident which may prompt EPA action.
