(Worthy News) – The Biden administration on Saturday halted the removal of toxic materials from East Palestine, Ohio, to ensure waste is transported to Environmental Protection Agency-certified facilities.

The EPA on Friday took control of the cleanup process from Norfolk Southern, whose train derailed in the devastating crash, and paused the company’s waste shipments over the weekend, CBS News reported. The company oversaw the removal of 15 truckloads of waste to a hazardous waste treatment facility, but five trucks were returned to East Palestine after the Biden administration’s order.

Excluding the returned trucks, more than 100,000 gallons of liquid waste and 4,000 cubic yards of solid waste remain in East Palestine, Republican Ohio governor Mike DeWine’s office told CBS. [ Source: Washington Free Beacon (Read More…) ]
