One Solution To Meth Lab Clean-Ups

by

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- As we first reported yesterday, the federal government has abruptly cut off funding for Meth Lab Cleanups, but one local police agency is looking at a solution, getting into the Hazardous Materials business.

KVET Capt. Jonathan Uribe says Kentucky was able to dramatically cut the cost of removing meth labs and supplies by doing it themselves. They will just need to collect about $50-thousand dollars from participating agencies to pay for moon-suits, training and disposal gear.

It can cost anywhere from hundreds to thousands for each remediation, if they go with private contractors. Most of the cost would be picked up by homeowners and landlords. Uribe denies rumors that they have stopped busting meth labs because of the funding issue
