Description:Here we see a leaking 50 gallon metal drum, dumping its toxic contents on to the surrounding ground. It is sometimes the case that these metal drums contain chemical contents, which depending on how they are stored, over time disintegrate, both as a result of the contents eating away at the container, and the detrimental effects the elements have upon the drums as well.
Methods by which industry disposes of toxic wastes are continuously at the forefront of those issues involved in the maintenance of proper public health safety. The CDC often monitors, and analyzes such waste dumping sites.
