The Industrial Excess Landfill (IEL) is a 30-acre closed sanitary landfill located in Uniontown, Stark County, Ohio. Over 400 residential homes, located within a 0.5 mile radius of the landfill, rely entirely on individual or private well supplies for drinking water. Prior to 1961, the landfill property may have been utilized as a coal mine and later for mining sand and gravel. Gradually, the mining/excavation pit was converted into a landfill which received a variety of wastes. Between 1964 and 1968, the site was used to store fly ash, masonry rubble, paper and lumber scrap. From 1968 to 1980, IEL accepted municipal, commercial, industrial and chemical wastes of substantially undetermined and unknown composition, primarily from the nearby rubber industry. Large quantities of chemical and liquid waste were dumped onto the ground either from 55-gallon drums or from tanker trucks. In January of 1972, the Stark County Board of Health (SCBH) ordered the dumping of chemical wastes stopped. In 1980, due to public concern and facility volume limitations, the landfill was ordered to close.
