The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) recently included the Chemetco site in Hartford, Ill., on the National Priorities List (NPL). NPL Sites are those facilities where USEPA has concluded that one or more hazardous substances has been released (or there is a substantial threat of a future release), that will cause someone to incur response costs under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA). Superfund Sites are not uncommon, but here, USEPA is seeking to impose cleanup liability on parties who were under the impression that they were exempt recyclers.
