An environmental hazard at 336 Cedar Street in Mansfield is being cleaned-up, by a crew from the U.S. EPA.

The former recycling business has sat vacant for a couple of years, with 3,000 tires and 28,000 florescent light bulbs left inside.

The EPA has spent the last week removing the bulbs. The florescent bulbs should all be gone by the end of the week, then the tires will be removed by the end of the year. The next step is to tear down the building. Mercury vapor is inside the building, but neighboring residents are not at risk.

The U.S. EPA will pursue recovery of the $90,000 clean- up cost from the former owner, either by billing him, or filing a lawsuit.
