Contraband Incinerators Can Help Law Enforcement Dispose of Mountains of Contraband Easily, Safely, and Cost-Effectively

Across one northern state, law enforcement officers impound growing quantities of contraband, including illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia. Add to that, evidence approved for disposal and unused prescription medications turned in by citizens. Their state's law enforcement officials needed safe, convenient, and cost-effective disposal to manage their growing volume of contraband.

They installed cost-effective Firelake P-16 incinerators in the north, west, and eastern regions of the state. Law enforcement officers all over the state are now within reasonable driving distance of a contraband incinerator.

Cost-effective. Their law enforcement agencies manage their budgets carefully so they considered both the initial and on-going costs.

Firelake P-16 incinerators met or exceeded their requirements:

  • budget-friendly to purchase
  • installation costs were nominal
  • operating costs are the lowest in the industry
  • ongoing maintenance is minimal; easily done by existing their staff

Quick and easy. Two officers can easily load a pallet of contraband into the incinerator in just minutes. One push of a button starts the incineration cycle then the officers can be on their way. The incinerator automatically maintains the correct temperature throughout incineration. In an hour or two, the incinerator automatically shuts off. Because the contents are now inert, a maintenance employee can remove the ash. It takes just a few minutes to sweep the ash into an ordinary garbage bag for disposal in their garbage dumpster.

Effective. Organic contraband becomes a small pile of sterile, inert ash; reduced in weight and volume by over 90%. Non-organic contraband is harmless.

Dual-custody compliant. Compliant with agency regulations, all of their units require dual-custody to operate; protecting officers and their agencies.

Good neighbors. No smell and no smoke. Firelake's standard P-16 incinerator is fully compliant with many local and state emissions regulations - pleasing even the most discerning citizens. Regulations vary so each unit is built to order; easily customized to ensure it meets applicable regulations.
