MCHMRT has a incident where a local in a rural area "found" a plastic bag with two single cook litre bottles. One looked like it produced product. The other looked as to have had too much caustic in it and had eaten out the bottom of the bottle in a couple of places.

We suited up in splash with resp protection and began the render safe with the first undamaged bottle. In a 5 gallon plastic bucked we added some Amfomag and water to the bottle quickly resulting in a 6.5 Ph. The second bottle was a bit more touchy. The first attempt led to the bottle finishing its exothermic reaction. We had to split the liquid 3 times with use of ample Amfomag to acceive a 6.5 Ph. We took the fluid to a municipal sewerage treatment plant and off loaded.

We usualy post photos on our website:


Of our runs...However stuff like single cook meth situation, in the teams viewpoint ( we have 3 cops on the team) are not something that SHOULD have public pictures posted. It always has the potential to make its way to court if someone drops dime on someone that spills the beans on the person that did the orphaned cook you rendered safe. Now the legal council of the tweeker finds you posted the pics...I see all kinds of trouble. A certain clean up company got in trouble for posting on their facebook that they were enroute to stand by and clean up after a raid on a meth lab.


Thanks  Cil!  Nice to see you on here!

Did you know over 32 million americans have tried meth?
