Hazardous materials are discovered inside a New Castle warehouse.

DNREC says it found unlabeled 55-gallon drums of flammable chemicals inside a Recyclers of Delaware facility.

The New Jersey-based company was also caught apparently storing more than 1,000 drums of hazardous materials inside a warehouse in Gloucester County. There, officials say the drums were leaking hazardous waste.

Samples were sent to a federal EPA lab. Charges or fines against Recyclers of Delaware may follow if the substances are deemed illegal.
