Methamphetamine and Meth Labs
Meth waste or other hazardous waste can be harmful to the health of people who find and disturb them. Roadside clean-up groups should be informed, before they participate in clean-ups, about common meth lab discards.
The “Shake and Bake” method of making meth can be processed in cars and small spaces. The waste generated from the process can be discarded on the roadside easily and uses commonly found items such as two-liter soda bottles in the process. If residue is visible inside of bottles found by the roadside, follow the recommendations in the Roadside Cleanup handout.
