Wasted Efforts

The next time we start to complain about government or EPA rules being overly strict, remember this scene:


That’s the former site of CGA in Sanford, Maine, where “hundreds of thousands of abandoned circuit boards” having been strewn across three acres for the past 20 years. It will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to clean it up. Every state has a similar story, and it’s a big reason why legislators and bankers are wary of helping the PCB industry. They can’t help but look at the past and worry that it will be repeated.
