Presentation at APPA's 78th Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida. Presents the facts related to a minor incident at the University of Nevada, Reno, which eventually developed into a major issue involving both the State and Federal EPA.  When a licensed barrel recycling company with which the university did not do business was discovered to have barrels with old shipping labels listing university addresses, the university became involved in a cleanup order when the company went bankrupt. Discusses how other institutions can avoid similar investigations and problems.
