Texas Ebola waste will not be disposed in Louisiana

On Friday Attorney General Buddy Caldwell announced the State of Louisiana reached an arrangement with Texas incinerator Veolia Environmental Services and Louisiana hazardous waste landfill Chemical Waste Management to make sure that incinerator ash associated with the recent Dallas Ebola virus occurrence won’t be transported or disposed of in Louisiana,.

On Oct. 13 the Louisiana Attorney General’s office got a restraining order in the 19th Judicial District Court to briefly stop the transport of incinerated Ebola ash into Louisiana.
The temporary retraining order was extended on Oct. 21 at the request of all parties, before ultimately arriving at today’s agreement.

Attorney General Caldwell stated,”I am pleased today’s arrangement ends this chapter in the controversy of this transport and disposal of Ebola waste”
