Caption: Barrels of hazardous chemical waste at South Carolina Recycling and Disposal, Inc. (SCRDI) Bluff Road Site, south of Columbia, South Carolina. The site was listed as an EPA Superfund site in 1981, meaning it required long-term clean-up. The property contained about 7,200 drums of toxic, flammable, and reactive wastes, as well as numerous smaller containers, plus two small ponds once used for lime slurry disposal by an acetylene manufacturer. Air, ground water, and surface water were all contaminated.
