The Plastech facility is a former plastic thermo-injection molding facility which is in bankruptcy. According to a former company employee, the facility closed operations in June 2008. The facility hired an environmental consultant who was tasked to consolidate and dispose of remaining waste at the facility.

It appears that parties salvaging the equipment have drained equipment fluids into drums and left the material on-site.
