Caldwell Incinerator Could Prove National Test Case

Record #:
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.
