PHILADELPHIA (Legal Newsline) — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced Oct. 18 that Dana Container Inc., owner and operator of a rail car cleaning and refurbishing facility in Wilmington, Delaware, will pay $12,000 after allegations related to hazardous waste storage violations.

 

EPA cited the company for allegedly violating the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and Delaware’s hazardous waste regulations, which exist to protect public health as well as the environment. The laws require safe, environmentally sound storage and disposal of hazardous waste.

 

The company’s waste was allegedly generated by cleaning rail cars using benzene, vinyl acetate and waste solvent. These products were allegedly stored improperly. EPA charged Dana Container with failing to ship wastes offsite in a timely manner, failing to keep proper records, and failing to develop a contingency plan.

 

Dana Container did not admit liability but certified it is now in compliance with the laws.
