The owner of an apartment building entered a unit that had been vacated and discovered that the renter had left behind an illegal meth lab and related chemicals. The renter could not be located and the landlord was left with the responsibility for the clean-up. Not only did the owner have to clean‑up the contaminants that had been released into the room, but had to pay to remove the leftover chemicals that were still in containers. Clean-up and disposal costs were in excess of $100,000.
