Last of hazardous chemicals removed from abandoned Slinger factory

by

SLINGER, WI (WTAQ) - The last of almost 9,000 gallons of hazardous chemicals were removed Tuesday from an abandoned factory in Slinger, 30 miles northwest of Milwaukee.

Emergency responders from the federal EPA’s Superfund program have been at the former Niphos Coatings plant since September 12th. They removed over 300 drums, vats, and jugs of dangerous chemicals – plus 100 smaller containers of cleaners and other solvents.

The EPA’s Verneta Simon says all of the hazardous chemicals are gone – and non-toxic sludge from the manufacturing process will be solidified and removed later this month. The chemicals were shipped to hazardous waste processors in Illinois for proper disposals.

Niphos Coatings made metal industrial plates. Its owner closed the plant in 2010, saying his business was a victim of the Great Recession.

Thomas Harju was hoping to re-open the plant once the economy got better – but he agreed earlier this year to have it cleaned out.
