A division of the Ohio Environmental Protection Association will hold a public meeting before renewing a permit allowing a local company to treat and store hazardous waste.

EPA staff will present information and answer questions about issues surrounding the renewal of an expiring permit for Vickery Environmental on Oct. 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the Townsend Township Volunteer Fire Department in Vickery. A public hearing will immediately follow to allow the public to submit comments for the record regarding the draft permit.

A draft of a new permit would  authorize the company to store up to 1.085 million gallons of waste per day and up to 126 million gallons of waste per year before storing it in four deep, underground wells.

The placement of waste in the wells requires a different permit from a separate Ohio EPA division.

Written comments may also be sent to Ohio EPA, Division of Materials and Waste Management, Attn: Dustin Tschudy, Section, P.O. Box 1049, Columbus, OH 43216-1049; faxed to (614) 728-5366; or emailed to dmwmcomments@epa.state.oh.us.

A draft of the permit renewal can be downloaded as a PDF using this link to http://www.epa.ohio.gov.

Well I for one live less than 1 mile from the vickery environmental plant ! I am 39 years old and was diagnosed with brain cancer 3 years ago and would like an explination of what they do there to filter out these toxic wastes that are brought in semi load after semi load !! I know they do their so called tests and have the EPA there and all that ,but somebodies making some money somewhere !! About 5 or 6 years ago there was a huge orange cloud in the sky and we were evacuated for the day from our home and they said everything was OK !! Well I don't care what anybody says that's not normal !! I want some answers and this situation needs to be taking care of soon !!! Clyde is less than 4 miles from the place too and there is the Cancer Cluster there, not ONLY in children but also in adults !! We don't have any explination other than a TOXIC DUMP SITE !!! It's pretty simple to figure out if you ask me !!! Maybe if I were to get an attorney they would be able to figure it out a little quicker !! I have young children and i"ll be damned if I want them to get cancer because some big shot wants to make money out of Toxic Waste !! Ship it to the desert !!!
