EPA discusses where to store hazardous materials

Posted: Updated:
SANDUSKY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

An EPA meeting in Sandusky County Tuesday discussed where environmental groups should store hazardous waste.

Vickery Environmental is located right off of State Route 412 in Sandusky County and is used to receive and store toxic and hazardous waste from other companies.

The facility keeps the waste underground in injection wells but their permit to operate those wells is expiring. Now they want to renew the permit and keep using those wells.

Before that can happen the EPA has to hold public meetings so that people can give their opinion.

Tuesday three people showed up to the meeting just to learn about the project.

EPA leaders who held the meeting say there is still time for people to voice their opinion about the wells at Vickery Environmental.

Those who would like to voice an opinion can write to the EPA at PO Box 1049, Columbus, Oh 43216.

Letters will be accepted until Sept. 4.
