HILLSVILLE — An Old Pipers Gap Road business that deconstructed computers and used acid to reclaim the gold used on circuit boards was not supposed to have any hazardous materials on site, according to the contract with his landlord.
Carroll County officials declared a local emergency as Environmental Protection Agency contractors began to assess and clean up the many open and leaky containers of hydrochloric and nitric acid once used to strip the precious metals from old computers.
In all, 300 barrels of hazardous materials were found in six box trailers.
