Let's not forget about the required permit they always seem to forget to get as well.
Howver, if you're Aruba Petroleum, it's not landfarming; it's temporarily relocating drilling waste with a backhoe and bulldozer to air out the BTEX and other wonderfully smelling chemicals for a few weeks before folding it back into the pit creating that Toxic Burrito. See, we're not landfarming, so we don't need no stinkin' permit.
