  The Environmental Protection Agency respectfully requests Controlling Board approval for an agency released competitive opportunity in the amount of $500,000 for FY 2018, from fund 5320, ALI 715646 (Recycling & Litter Control) to contract with Rumpke of Ohio, Inc for site remediation of an open dump located at Good Deeds Recycling, in Dayton, Ohio.
  Over a two-year period of operation, the Good Deeds facility, which was previously owned by Quality Farms, accepted beer, wine and soft drink products that were expired, mislabeled or produced incorrectly. The products were not processed and recycled in a manner consistent with environmental laws, regulations and local health code requirements. They were stockpiled outside and in warehouses and trailers. The property has become an open dump site and Ohio EPA has issued a notice of violation to the current owner, Good Deeds, LLC, directing them to process or properly remove and dispose of the product. Ohio EPA is also reviewing legal options to pursue Good Deeds for penalties and cleanup costs.

The local health department has also issued orders related to site conditions, including issues related to rats, mosquitoes and the open drainage of unwanted liquid into the local storm drainage system. Trapping results have indicated that West Nile virus exists in mosquitoes that have been collected on the property. Although the local health department has sprayed for mosquitoes, the health concern will remain until the site is remediated. Additionally, there is an elementary school approximately 300 feet from the site in question.

The current owner has neither the financial nor operational capacity to remove the material. Ohio EPA is requesting approval to enter into an initial contract not to exceed $300,000, for the collection and removal of litter and waste material outside of the buildings. This will eliminate the immediate environmental and health concerns before the material begins to freeze and burst from the cans and bottles. We are requesting an additional $200,000 waiver of competitive bidding, for a total of $500,000, that may be used if the material inside the buildings must also be removed. In addition to pursuing Good Deeds, Ohio EPA is working with the beer, wine and soft drink producers and distributors to seek reimbursement for the cost of the cleanup.
