Over the past few weeks, OPP have responded to a number of reports involving the disposal of waste in ditches, primarily in the Caledon area.
When examined, the waste appears to be from a synthetic drug lab and is extremely hazardous. Police took precautionary measures to secure the area and safely removed the discarded waste.
Police say they are concerned about the manner in which the waste was disposed, and have issued a public safety warning. Should anyone locate any discarded waste products that possess a strong chemical based odour, have solidified or liquid residue, to please contact the OPP immediately. Under no circumstances should any member of the public go near any of these discarded products.
