New Containers To Speed Up Meth Lab Cleanup

The state attorney general says new hazardous material containers at five sites around Ohio will help authorities more quickly clean up methamphetamine labs.

Mike DeWine's announcement today in North Canton comes amid a spike in the number of meth labs seized by authorities in Ohio this year. His office says law enforcement agencies have reported a record-high 770 lab seizures during this federal fiscal year. DeWine says the hazardous material containers will help to reduce the time and money required to clean up those labs.
