Landfill and air violations at Pheasant Run resolved

A civil environmental enforcement action arising from landfill and air violations at the Pheasant Run Recycling & Disposal Facility in Paris has been filed and resolved, Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced Monday.

The complaint alleges that from the fall of 2008 until the end of May 2009, Waste Management failed to cover 10 acres of waste at Pheasant Run as required by its permit. In addition, in 2004-05, Waste Management replaced two engines at Pheasant Run without a construction permit as required by the administrative code.

Waste Management has agreed to pay forfeitures and costs totaling $100,000 for these violations. This settlement was approved by Judge Michael Wilk, Kenosha County Circuit Court, on April 15.

The violations were investigated by the state Department of Natural Resources, who referred the matter to the Wisconsin Department of Justice. Assistant Attorney General Steven Tinker represented the state.
