Police say a large quantity of methamphetamine and fentanyl was seized, along with hundreds of litres of chemicals and a significant amount of waste material.

The release says the waste can contaminate the environment and cause great health risks to the public.

It says specialized hazardous waste removal and disposal required in the case will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Five men from B.C. and an Alberta man face several counts of unlawfully possessing chemicals, trafficking and production of a controlled substance.
