DNREC issues administrative penalty and Secretary’s Order to EcoServices, LLC for violations of Delaware’s Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants

Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) Secretary Shawn M. Garvin has issued a Notice of Administrative Penalty Assessment and DNREC Secretary’s Order to EcoServices, LLC, and a company foreman, Derrick Maxwell, for violating Delaware’s Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, according to a statement released by DNREC. Both EcoServices, LLC, and Derrick Maxwell were each assessed a penalty of $20,000 by the agency, and ordered to pay $12,948 in recovery costs for the Department’s services and subsequent investigation.

EcoServices, LLC, a licensed environmental contractor based in Exton, Pa., and the company’s worksite foreman Maxwell were found to be in violation of state emission standards for hazardous air pollutants when EcoServices, LLC performed asbestos abatement services earlier this year at the former General Motors plant at Boxwood in New Castle County, read a statement released by the agency.

Officials said the two violations by EcoServices, LLC and Derrick Maxwell cited in the Secretary’s Order occurred on Feb. 25 and March 8, 2019. Each violation was assessed a $10,000 penalty by DNREC. The Order, which can be found on the DNREC website at https://dnrec.alpha.delaware.gov/secretarys-orders/enforcement/, provides more information.

Respondents have 30 days to appeal the Secretary’s Order by requesting a public hearing.
