Jessup Business in More Trouble with DEP
JESSUP — More problems for a Lackawanna County company after a fire two years ago destroyed much of the business.
The Jessup business, formerly known as Scranton Cooperage, is now known as American Container Processor.
The DEP ordered the owner to clean-up the chemicals on the property. The DEP says the chemicals have been stored at the site for more than a year.
A company official says the waste is debris from the June 2014 fire.
The company now has just seven days to identify the chemicals in the waste and safely remove them from the property.
The DEP says its action is not connected to the arrest of former Cooperage owner Eric Spatt who has been charged with environmental crimes stemming from the 2014 fire.
