Toxic Chemical Waste from Ohio Now Headed to Other States

Contaminated waste from the toxic train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, is being shipped to Indiana and could also be heading to other states in the wake of the ongoing cleanup.

There have already been fifteen truckloads of toxic waste disposed of in Michigan, while five truckloads carrying 280 tons had been in East Palestine, according to an update from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s office.

The report added that liquid waste had been disposed of at a Texas treatment site, while 02,000 gallons of liquid waste remains in East Palestine.

EPA’s regional administrator, Debra Shore, said that solid waste would be sent to an incinerator operated by Ross Environmental Services in Grafton, Ohio, and also a Heritage hazardous waste landfill in Roachdale, Indiana, which also operates the facility in East Liverpool.

The two facilities in Ohio, which began taking in shipments on Monday, “don’t have enough capacity to handle all the liquid and solid waste from this cleanup,” Shore explained. This means the agency had to look for other disposal locations.

Meanwhile, a demonstration held by local Republicans and residents in Michigan said: “Stop these shipments. Do not bring these shipments to Michigan.”

Texas officals said they were unaware that toxic materials from the crash were being sent to a site near them until they heard about it from the press.

“That’s unacceptable,” Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said. “I know our community was taken aback by the news just as much as I was.”

The Ohio derailment saw 38 rail cars containing hazardous material go off the tracks earlier this month.

Ohio residents have since complained of mysterious symptoms after being exposed to the toxic chemicals

Officials have since discovered toxic chemicals in the soil surrounding the derailment site and in nearby waterways.

Last week, an attorney representing more than 30,000 people impacted by 9/11, warned East Palestine residents not to trust what the EPA says about water quality.

Michael Barasch said his clients are still dying, about two a day, due to exposure to toxins from the 9/11 attack.

“If we have learned anything, it’s that the World Trade Center dust taught us that 9/11 didn’t end on 9/11,” he said.

“If I were giving any advice, I would say wait for the scientists, not the EPA, the independent scientists, to tell us that the water and the air is safe,” he warned.

This is Democrats fault for not containing and cleaning the chemicals. If Trump was in charge, he would have sent crews to clean it up while democrats scream that Trump was not doing his job.

Who are these fools in Michigan? That landfill has been operating for decades taking the same kinds of waste. Tomorrow and for decades to come, it will accept the same kinds of hazardous wastes in soils from remediation sites. There is nothing special or more dangerous about the waste from this site. In fact, it is LESS dangerous than a lot of wastes we dispose of every day without a peep.
