Extech Building Materials warehouse is the site of a toxic dump where toxic waste is stored and disposed of, according to a new investigation by Health Impact News.
The warehouse has been home to toxic waste since 2007 and the dump has been closed for two years due to the deteriorating condition of the building materials.
The Extech building material warehouse was one of the first in the United States to be built in the late 1990s.
The building materials warehouse is a site of toxic waste storage and disposal facilities for the Extech Medical Group, which manufactures medical equipment for use in the military, including medical equipment and other materials.
Extech Medical has been operating a hazardous waste landfill since 2007, but the facility’s hazardous waste disposal facility has been the site for a series of serious health and safety incidents over the last three years.
In August, Extech workers discovered a chemical spill on the building and it’s now closed, despite repeated requests from Health Impact Newswire for information about the hazardous waste dump.
The facility has closed for five days and has been in violation of its state and federal hazardous waste regulations since December 2014.
In May, Health Impact reported on another hazardous waste cleanup at the ExTech building materials depot.
The dump was shut down by March 2018 and is now closed for a month due to an ongoing fire.
Extech officials told the New York Times that the dump was closed due to a leak in a basement storage tank.
Health Impact News’ investigation into the Ex-Tech hazardous waste site found that Extech has been at the center of a series or ongoing health and environmental disasters since the facility was built in 2007.
In the case of the toxic dump, workers discovered toxic waste at the site in April 2016 and the facility has since been closed.
ExTech has since reopened as a commercial real estate development company, but workers said they had to pay more than $15,000 for the facility to reopen.
ExTech officials told Health Impact that it’s difficult to determine what exactly happened at the dump because it was not inspected by state and federally required agencies, and the state has not taken any enforcement action against the company.
Ex-tech officials also said that state regulations and the health and health safety regulations for hazardous waste storage sites require that the company keep hazardous waste and waste products out of a workplace and that employees are required to report hazardous waste to the state.
The toxic dump has remained closed to the public since March 2018, but Extech plans to reopen it for a year starting next month.
Extechnology said it’s been in discussions with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to help address the issue, and Extech is expected to re-open the facility again in September 2018.
Health impact News contacted Extech and the New Brunswick, New Jersey, Department of Health and Environmental Control (DEP), which oversees the hazardous-waste dump, for comment.
A spokesman for the New New Brunswick Department of Environment and Natural Resources did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the health impacts associated with Extech’s hazardous-material dump.
Health impacts News reached out to the New England Regional Waste Management Authority (NERWMA), which manages Extech, for further comment on Extech.
The DEP did not respond to our request for an interview with the DEP.
Healthimpact News has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the U.S. Department of Energy to obtain information about hazardous waste dumps at Extech that are in violation, and we’re hopeful that we’ll be able to provide a more comprehensive look at the health impact at Ex-ts, Ex-s and Ex-c.
