DOUGLASS ROAD/UNIROYAL, INC., LANDFILL
Superfund Site Profile
The 16-acre Douglas Road/Uniroyal Inc. Landfill site is located in Mishawaka, Indiana. Uniroyal operated an unlined landfill on site between 1954 and 1979. From 1954 to 1971, solvents, fly ash, paper, wood stock, rubber and plastic wrap were disposed of at the site. Facility operations led to soil and groundwater contamination. After closure, the landfill was covered with topsoil and seeded. According to Uniroyal, some 6,000 barrels of waste were disposed of at the landfill. The company filed for bankruptcy in 1991. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities and groundwater treatment are ongoing.
