This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Notice is hereby given that on May 28, 2010, a proposed Consent Decree (“Decree”) in United States v. The Scrap Yard, LLC, d/b/a/Cleveland Scrap, Civil Action No. 1:10-cv-01206, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
In this action the United States, on behalf of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“U.S. EPA”), sought penalties and injunctive relief under the Clean Air Act (“CAA”) against The Scrap Yard, LLC, d/b/a/Cleveland Scrap (“Defendant”) relating to Defendant's Cleveland, Ohio facility (“Facility”). The Complaint alleges that Cleveland Scrap has violated Section 608(b)(1) of the CAA, 42 U.S.C. 7671g(b)(1) (National Recycling and Emission Reduction Program), and the regulations promulgated thereunder, 40 CFR part 82, subpart F, by failing to follow the requirement to recover or verify recovery of refrigerant from appliances it accepts for disposal. The Consent Decree provides for a civil penalty of $5,000 based upon ability to pay. The Decree also requires Defendant to (1) purchase equipment to recover refrigerant or contract for such services and provide such service at no additional cost; (2) no longer accept appliances with cut lines unless the supplier can provide appropriate verification that such appliances have not leaked; (3) require its suppliers to use the verification statement provided in appendix A; and (4) keep a refrigerant recovery log regarding refrigerant that it has recovered.
