Department of Environmental Protection Stops Burning at Chapman Glass Plant in Pennsboro

PENNSBORO -

The Chapman Glass Plant in Pennsboro closed its doors about 10 years ago, but recently the factory was purchased by Barnes Trucking and is being cleaned up.

The Department of Environmental Protection said during that clean-up the company was burning the construction and demolition materials. The DEP said that is a violation, and that burning must stop.

Anything that was already burned was permitted to continue until it burned out.

All the materials must now be taken to a landfill, but the company has to wait 10 days to get a permit to continue the controlled burn.
