Superfund Site Profile
The BEC Trucking site is located on Stewart Road in Vestal, New York. In the mid-1960s, a trucking company filled in 3.5 acres of marshland with various materials to raise the ground level. BEC Trucking used the property for truck body manufacturing, painting and vehicle maintenance. These operations generated hazardous wastes, which were stored on-site. To clean up the site, the property owner removed waste drums and placed stained soil in storage drums, which the EPA later removed. No other cleanup actions were required. The EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in October 1992.
