I say death, and ALL of their holdings go towards fixing what they broke.
Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.
Most people just really don't know about this.
No I'm not going into detail on the internets about it.
Suffice to say, you'd be surprised.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
A few things;
1. If Waste Management refused to pick it up, then why?
That info does not seem to be provided.
2. Did they refuse to pay?
Again, info does not appear to be provided.
3. How long had they been dumping, assuming they refused to pay?
This would indicate the severity of the crime.
Some Cyanide info;
If they were stuck in a catch-22 situation, where WM refused to pick it up, and they were willing to pay, than a fine and community service would cover it for them. But, in that instance, WM should be liable as well.Cyanide ions are relatively stable in the environment unless they are oxidized. The fate and behaviour of cyanides in water will be controlled by various parameters of the water body — namely, pH, trace metal levels, dissolved oxygen and temperature. Although there appear to be no specific data, the half-life of cyanides in water is likely to be weeks.

If I were looking to do serious harm to a village or city or whatever, I'd just buy 20-30 gallons of gas, and start dumping it near water treatment facilities. Simple as pie, really.
Then again, I'm kinda crazy like that...I just think about all the bad stuff you can do with otherwise normal items. I guess I'm a terrorist in the making, lol?
Like, for instance, I look at the news, and see all the creative ways and lengths people go to to kill other people, and it boggles my mind. Doesn't need to be complicated. Buy a propane tank, fill it, and set it on fire. Run like hell. One 20 lb tank is enough to more than level the typical size home...or office, fast food joint, etc. You get the idea.
Cyanide in the river is pretty bad, though, to be honest. It's basically like pouring thousands and thousands of gallons of bleach into the water.
