Record #:
North Carolina is one of the major waste-producing states in the nation, yet, the number of facilities for treatment and storage of hazardous wastes in North Carolina continues to decline. Reasons for the decline are siting limitations, strict regulations, and high cost of liability insurance. Closure of facilities has led to other problems and concerns.
