Drums of flammable liquid and solid waste discovered at 3200 W. 7693 South have been shipped off to hazardous waste disposal plants, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

EPA public affairs officer Hays Griswold in Denver said the EPA began cleaning the area, called the Livingston Property Drum Site, on April 28, 1988. This month, the agency shipped 32 drums of flammable liquid to the RINECO cement kiln in Arkansas and 163 drums of flammable solid waste to Envirosafe Inc. in Grandview, Idaho.The cleanup has been completed and the temporary 6-foot fence around the site has been removed, Griswold said.

The Utah Health Department referred the problem to the EPA in early April 1988, following a complaint from a family living nearby that a child developed a rash after playing at the site.
