On June 2, 2009, OSC Steve Spurlin, the Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation, and the Hardin County Emergency Management Agency assessed site conditions at the site of the Williams Cabinet Shop, a former wood cabinet manufacturer. Williams Cabinet manufactured cabinets for the mobile home industry from 1982 to March 2009. The bankrupt facility generated hazardous waste and hazardous substances in their staining,painting, and gluing operations. Lacquer thinners, acetone, and toluene and associated sludges were the primary waste materials generated. A significant number of drums and containers are abandoned on the property, primarily in unsecured truck trailers located a short distance from several homes. The drums and containers contain waste lacquer thinners, paints, and wood staining chemicals. Site conditions warranted a emergency action and on June 3, 2009 OSC Spurlin mobilized a START contractor to document site conditions and an Emergency Rapid Response Service (ERRS) contractor to remove and stage the drums for future disposal.
