Keep fracking waste off Ohio roads

Protect OH!
State bills want to smear fracking waste fluids all over Ohio's roads for deicer. Act now to stop it.

Ohio lawmakers are working on yet another scheme to benefit the oil and gas industry at our expense with Ohio House Bill 393 and Senate Bill 165. It would allow oil and gas waste, including fracking fluids, to be sold as a “commodity.” This means hazardous waste  could be sold in stores and spread on our roads as a deicer by the Ohio Department of Transportation. 

Oil and gas waste is dangerous. Spreading it on roads and highways exposes Ohio communities and waterways to carcinogens and other dangerous chemicals.
