Meth Lab Cleanup Poses Unique Challenges for Housing Authorities, Landlords

Housing authorities and landlords can recover meth lab cleanup costs through government programs.

A Big, Hazardous, Expensive Headache

Unfortunately, we see it in the headlines too often: Secret meth lab busted. What we don’t see is what’s left after the headlines, the nasty, toxic, dangerous mess left behind by the production of the deadly drug, methamphetamine. If you’re the property manager or owner, it’s up to you to get that mess cleaned up safely and thoroughly so that other residents and future tenants are safe. Making matters worse, meth production produces toxic chemical waste and noxious, volatile vapors, so meth lab cleanup is often regulated by state and even federal agencies, such as the Colorado Department of Health and Environment or the federal Environmental Protection Agency.

But There’s Help Available

Fortunately, there are government programs aimed at supporting compliance with regulations that protect people and the environment from meth lab toxic waste.

The EPA’s Brownfields or “MethFields” initiative even offers grants to help offset the costs of safely cleaning up meth labs and disposing of the hazardous waste (see link below). But you have to comply with strict regulations to qualify for the grants.

That’s the point. Do it right, protect people and the environment from the hazards and toxic waste produced by meth labs, and you can get help with the cleanup costs.

Laws and Regulations

Our knowledge of the strict rules designed to protect people and property from toxic meth lab contamination enables housing authorities and property owners to recover cleanup costs by qualifying for government help.
