CHICAGO (May 14, 2018) – Today, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will begin a hazardous waste cleanup at Ensign Products Co., a former rustproofing and oil blending facility located at 3528 E. 76th St. in Cleveland.
In 2016, a fire at the facility melted numerous totes and ruptured drums. The facility was abandoned after the fire, leaving behind many hazardous wastes including 450 drums both inside and outside the building.
