Notice is hereby given that on February 14, 2012, a proposed Consent Decree (“Decree”) in United States v. Pure Earth Recycling, Inc. (f/k/a Casie Ecology Oil Salvage, Inc. and Mid-Atlantic Recycling Technologies, Inc.), Civil Action No. 11-CV-00161-JBS-AMD, was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.

In this action the United States sought civil penalties and injunctive relief against Pure Earth Recycling under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (“RCRA”), 42 U.S.C. 6928, in connection with the Settling Defendant's violations of RCRA at its Vineland, New Jersey Facility. Under the proposed Consent Decree, the Settling Defendant agrees to pay a civil penalty of $750,000 subject to certain circumstances; comply with all terms and provisions of RCRA; comply with all applicable state and federal hazardous waste regulations; and if the Settling Defendant resumes operations at its Facility, comply with the Standard Operating Procedures set forth in the Consent Decree. The terms of the settlement regarding the amount of the civil penalty are based upon representations made by the Settling Defendant concerning its ability to pay.
