This sort of thing (improper disposal of hazardous waste in order to save a small amount of money) is one of the many reasons that "extended producer responsibility" is so important. More here: Web Link

The local assistant DA working the case is Ken Mifsud, not Misfud. It's a Maltese name from Malta. Anyway, I LOVE to shop at Target, but I am even MORE concerned that Target is now selling produce at many stores and will continue to dump even MORE dangerous waste in the environment. These things are serious, and rule breakers should be suffer consequences like the rest of us.
