Cleanup removes hazards to public health.

Methamphetamine is an illegal drug, often referred to as meth.

When people make, use, store or distribute meth, a harmful chemical residue can contaminate property, including:

  • Homes and outbuildings.
  • Clothes, furniture and toys.
  • Vehicles.
  • Soil, air and water.

If contamination is above safety standards, we place a Health Order to close the contaminated property to legal occupation or use.

We oversee cleanup to protect human health and the environment. We help property owners and cleanup contractors with:

  • Technical assistance.
  • Understanding state and local rules and regulations.
  • A list of approved cleanup contractors.
  • Review cleanup procedure to make sure it meets public health and safety standards.
