DEP inspected Scuteri Dump Site on June 10 and states the following: "A routine inspection of the Scuteri property was conducted on June 10th by Chris Myers, Solid Waste Specialist. A small amount of progress has been made towards cleaning up the dump site and the residential area of the Scuteri property since the previous inspection. Some work has been done towards demolishing and removing the waste from the mobile home located closest to the Sheffield Wastewater Treatment Plant.
"It appeared that a small amount of waste has been removed from the area behind the residential mobile homes on Cottage Avenue. Large amounts of scrap metal, demoltion debris, household items and other random materials are still stored on the property. It appears that Mr. Scuteri had sorted and organized the materials. As noted in the previous inspection report, some electronics wastes, paint cans and drums of unknown materials are still stored on site.
"It appeared that Scuteri has also started to clean up some of the waste materials located along the roadside near his home. It appears that Scuteri has made some effort towards correcting the ongoing violations.
"It is strongly advised that Scuteri continue to make significant progress in order to correct the noted deficiencies. In order to correct the violations, significant efforts should be made to remove and properly dispose of all waste materials currently located on the property. All electronics wastes should be taken to a recycling center. The buckets and drums of unknown material should be identified and then recycled or disposed of, as appropriate. All ashes and partially burned materials located within the burn pile should be removed from the ground surface and disposed of at a permitted landfill. All other waste materials should be disposed of at a landfill. Disposal and recycling receipts should be forwarded to Chris Myers at the DEP. No new waste materials are to be brought onto the property, including the "old dump site" and the residential areas on Cottage Avenue. Failure to comply with correcting the above noted violations will result in the initiation of additional enforcement action."
