Drum Site (Matthews, NC)
Video Presentation
Hosted by U.S. EPA
Office of Superfund Remediation & Technology Innovation

In Matthews, NC, EPA Region IV was faced with the formidable task of identification and disposal of 5,000 contaminant-filled drums from an abandoned warehouse. Various wastes were contained in the drums including ethylene glycol, peroxides, acids, and flammable liquids and solids. An on-site laboratory was set up at the small 2-acre site to aid in the characterization of wastes, allowing compatible waste streams to be "bulked" for disposal. Running time is 6 minutes. For general information contact Jeff Heimerman by telephone at 703-603-7191 (Fax: 703-603-9135) or via e-mail at
