Official: Ebola waste not ending up in Louisiana
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana's attorney general says two waste disposal companies have agreed not to bring ash from the incineration of a Texas Ebola victim's belongings into Louisiana.
Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said on Friday that Veolia Environmental Services and Chemical Waste Management signed a court agreement saying they would not bring the ash into Louisiana.
On Oct. 13 Caldwell obtained a state restraining order to stop the ash from being brought into the state.
Caldwell said he was pleased the "agreement ends this chapter in the controversy of the transportation and disposal of Ebola waste."
