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.

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.
