Colorado orders Abound Solar to clean up hazardous waste at four sites

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment says Abound Solar is responsible for thousands of “unsellable” solar panels containing cadmium in warehouses. Barrels of toxic liquid also were found.

Colorado health and environment officials have ordered Loveland-based Abound Solar, the bankrupt solar-panel maker, to clean up hazardous waste at four Front Range locations.

Don’t worry, it’s ‘green’ hazardous waste.

The Abound facilities are storing thousands of “unsellable” solar panels and thousands of gallons of toxic liquids, according to Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment reports.

“The Department views these 2,000 pallets of solar panels as a characteristic hazardous waste for cadmium,” a report on a Denver warehouse said…

So the Obama administration is trying to force us to put “hazardous waste” on our roofs?

    What did you think went into a solar panel,candy and jelly beans.
    Twisty light bulbs have one drop of mercury in each one. One drop times how many million bulbs.

    The Panels themselves are not nearly as bad as the shit it takes to process them. I wonder what they did with that. Same process they use for Semi Conductors (PVD). Back in the early 90′s they were still using Parakeets in the hallways of some of those facilities.

    When they said green technology I didn’t dream it was the sickly green glow of toxic waste.
