Environmental problems associated with abandoned products

An increasing amount of natural land within Strathcona County is being covered by and contaminated with abandoned materials, both in rural and urban areas. Examples of materials include:

  • vehiclesPhoto of tow truck pulling old vehicle.
  • farm and industrial equipment
  • pipes
  • oil drums
  • scrap metal
  • spilled materials

Many of these items contain oil, diesel, battery acid and similar materials, which have the potential to leech into wetlands, watercourses, lakes and groundwater. This leeching negatively impacts water treatment costs, biological health and species diversity and even public health.
