    That's awful. If I were operating in Maine I'd either A) get into some other business or B) switch from lien sales to lien incinerations.

        Your absolutely right, what happens in one state has a way of showing up in other states.

        Most facilities have a section in their contracts that restricts the storage of hazardous and dangerous materials, what about restricting or forbidding the storage of personal records?
