A self storage facility repossessed a locker from a renter who had missed several payments. Upon gaining control of the rental space they found 12 drums of hazardous material. The renter could not be found, so the owner of the storage facility was required to pay for the cost of disposal of the drums. In addition, soil and groundwater investigations were required due to staining on the floor of the unit which resulted in the need to excavate several tons of impacted soils.
