The former 103-acre Sinclair Oil Refinery is located in the Town of Wellsville, Allegany County, New York. The site was originally developed as an oil refinery during the late 1800s and was operated by the Wellsville Refining Company. Products manufactured at the site included lubricating oils and grease, fuel oil, naptha, gasoline, lighter fluid and paraffin. In 1924, the Wellsville Refining Company sold the property and plant to Sinclair Refining Company which maintained and operated the refinery until 1958, when operations ceased as a result of a fire. While the refinery was in operation, the southernmost portion of the property was used as a landfill to dispose of approximately 230,000 yd3 of wastes. Substances deposited in the landfill consisted of drummed waste, oily and tarry sludges, and hazardous waste compounds in other forms.
