How is that the elected officials fault that this company failed it's inspection? The city has no control over regulating the air quality control. The agency responsible came in, found them at fault, and shut them down.

Move on to your next fake cry baby headline you loser

Illinois EPA seeks to close shredding plant
FERROUS, NONFERROUS, AUTO SHREDDING
State agency alleges objects ejected from the shredder landed onto property outside the recycler’s boundaries.

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has referred an enforcement action against Metal Recycling Systems Inc., Blue Island, Ill., to the Illinois attorney general’s office for violating the Illinois Environmental Protection Act and the Illinois Pollution Control Board regulations. The Illinois EPA is seeking immediate injunctive relief.

Metal Recycling Systems, which operates an auto shredder and nonferrous metals separation process in Blue Island, was the subject of a violation notice issued by the Illinois EPA on April 2, 2014. Since then, the agency says it has received additional complaints, which resulted in an additional inspection of the property and the referral seeking immediate injunctive relief.

In visiting the facility, the Illinois EPA says it observed objects that had allegedly been ejected from the company’s shredder onto adjacent property beyond the facility’s boundaries. The agency also observed damage to a nearby structure allegedly caused by an object ejected from the shredder. The Illinois EPA believes conditions at the facility have changed since the Violation Notice was issued in early April in such a manner that there is an imminent threat to public health and welfare.

In the referral, the agency cited violations of common law public nuisance related to the ejection of objects from the shredder, allowing emissions of particulate matter to extend beyond the facility boundaries and other record-keeping and reporting violations.

The Illinois EPA has asked the Illinois attorney general to obtain immediate injunctive relief and for Metal Recycling to immediately cease all operations at the Blue Island facility until proper measures can be taken to protect public health and safety. The measures include development, implementation and submittal of a compliance plan to address projectiles and particulate matter emissions from the facility as well as record-keeping and reporting requirements.

Blue Island Citizens must erase all the corruption that the Frasor-Peloquin gang shoved down our throats. This is just the beginning. I wonder how Attorney Mayor Vargas will like it when he no longer has a Law license.

This epic failure a direct result of elected officials following and moving in the wrong direction, lack of common sense, failure to complete due diligence, and complacency; resulting in abuse of power and destruction to communities including but not limited to Blue Island.
