Unfortunately lead recyclers frequently do not meet emissions regulations. In Indianapolis the lead recycler is "Quemetco", and RJR company.(When I was looking for work as a chemist, they continually had ads for a chemist),

At another job I spoke with a person who had worked at Quemetco and spoke about pulling the IDEM samplers out of the sewer so the company could flush waste down the sewer and not get caught. The management actually spent time in jail for that!

And the monument to stupidity we called 'National Lead' is STILL standing on it's little corner of Beech Grove and STILL needs to be cleaned up.

Yet it is okay to keep accepting toys, etc. full of lead from China. Why don't they fine them some big bucks?

Yet we are still letting China ship all kinds of toys, etc. full of lead here and do nothing about it. Why aren't they hit with the big bucks fines?
