An Ohio chemical and hazardous waste company will pay a $11,250 penalty to settle hazardous waste violations, the state Environmental Protection Agency said.
Hukill Chemical Corp. of Bedford, Ohio, caused hazardous waste to be transported to a facility not permitted to accept such material. The company also shipped hazardous waste without the proper manifest and failed to evaluate waste to determine if it was hazardous, the Ohio EPA said.
The company addressed the violations and now operates in compliance with the state´s hazardous waste regulation, the agency said.
Hukill is a permitted hazardous waste treatment and storage facility and a large-quantity generator of hazardous waste, the state said. The company operates a solvent recycling and fuel blending operation and distributes chemical products.
