Radant Technologies of Stow Penalized $6,400 for Violating Hazardous Waste Requirements

BOSTON - The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) has assessed a $6,440 penalty against Radant Technologies, Inc. of Stow for violations of state Hazardous Waste regulations. The company manufactures composite radomes and reflectors at its 255 Hudson Road facility.   

During a routine inspection conducted in March, MassDEP personnel found the company had accumulated hazardous waste for longer than is allowed by its registered status, failed to maintain a hazardous waste inspection log and failed to properly label its hazardous waste containers. In a consent order with MassDEP, the company is required to maintain compliance with applicable regulations and pay the penalty.

"Hazardous Waste regulations require proper management and disposal of wastes within specific time frames, which are dependent on the amount of waste generated," said Lee Dillard Adams, director of MassDEP's Central Regional Office in Worcester. "Once made aware of the violations, the company took immediate corrective actions."

MassDEP is responsible for ensuring clean air and water, safe management and recycling of solid and hazardous wastes, timely cleanup of hazardous waste sites and spills and the preservation of wetlands and coastal resources.
