The company is subject to a number of local and state environmental requirements and this open house is an opportunity for regulators and the local community to discuss issues in their neighborhood.

In the past 40 years, air pollutants dropped by as much as 90 percent; large rivers meeting standards improved from 21 percent to 89 percent; and hundreds of polluting, open dumps were replaced with engineered landfills and an increased emphasis on waste reduction and recycling. Ohio EPA….40 years and moving forward.
