PUTNAM CO., Ind. (WTHI)- News of the delivery of waste from the Ohio train derailment to an Indiana waste facility has many in Roachdale concerned.

Especially now, since an EPA report for Heritage Environmental Services shows at least one long-standing violation.


But, Indiana State University Professor Jennifer Latimer said we shouldn't be too concerned about that violation.

"If they had major compliance issues," she said. "Then, they would no longer have their permit."

Latimer said facilities like Heritage are maintained by permits. They state how much and at what time the facility can receive toxic waste.
