Forest Waste Disposal is located on a 112-acre tract of land, in a rural, residential area in the southeast quarter of Forest Township, Genesee County, Michigan. This location is approximately 12 miles northeast of Flint, and approximately 2 miles northwest of the city of Otisville. Forest Waste Disposal is a closed, 15-acre landfill which was licensed from 1972 to 1978 to accept general refuse and industrial wastes. During the course of operations, the facility accepted a variety of industrial wastes, including plating wastes, paint sludges, and waste oils. The facility also accepted PBB and PCB-contaminated wastes, refuse from a chemical warehouse fire, and unidentified barrels from Berlin and Farro hazardous waste site in Swartz Creek, Michigan. Although the landfill was permitted by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to accept most of these wastes, the facility was run in a haphazard manner. County Health Department records on the site state that trenches were dug randomly, industrial wastes were buried with general refuse, and liquid wastes were discharged into the landfill and onto the ground throughout the landfill's operation.
