Description

This article investigates how polluting companies, like National Cement Co, are not careful about eliminating toxic waste. Consequently, people who live near these companies suffer from headaches, nosebleeds and other symptoms. One of the major problems is burning solvents, because they are hard to destroy completely. Representatives from the companies say that burning chemicals and hazardous waste is a safer solution that using landfills -- this article shows that they might be wrong..and suggests reforms that might improve the situation.
