The Coker's Sanitation Service Landfills site is comprised of two inactive landfills in Kent County, Delaware. Each landfill contains approximately 45,000 cubic yards of latex sludge waste in addition to the contaminated soil/waste. From 1969 to 1977, latex rubber waste sludge was disposed of at Landfill No. 1 into unlined trenches, which were topped off with local soil when nearly filled with sludge. From 1976 to 1980, latex sludge was also disposed of in lined trenches at Landfill No. 2. Excess levels of styrene and ethylbenzene were found in the waste trenches of both landfills and in the leachate collection system of landfill No. 2. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses contamination in both landfills and in the leachate collection system at Landfill No. 2. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and sludge are VOCs including benzene and metals.
