If you’ve ever thrown a party for teenagers, you might think that your kitchen and living room could be declared a hazardous site. As it happens, there is a real hazardous site in the Pittsburgh area that was in the need of a serious cleanup. Now that job has garnered the attention of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. They recently issued a lawsuit against 17 companies in the hopes of recovering some of the costs of cleaning up a Superfund clean-up site in Lawrence County. This specific site is located in West Pittsburg and was run by Reactive Metals and Alloys Corp., or Remacor.
When it was up and running the processing plant brought in magnesium shavings and scrap that was then melted down into a reagent used in steel production. A 2005 fire forced the plant to shutter but for some bizarre reason it continued to take in magnesium waste. How much? Around 6 million pounds. Back in 2006, the DEP and the EPA removed all of that waste for the hefty price of $10 million. Now they want to get some of that money back from those 17 defendant companies who dropped the magnesium waste off at Remacor. That makes sense and it certainly puts your own “toxic waste” situation into perspective.
