A Marshall County Recycling Center operator must cease and desist after solid waste was discovered at his business.
Officials with ADEM and the attorney general's office were supposed to meet with the owner of Ellis Paving and Construction on Thursday, but no one from the company attended so the hearing proceeded without them.
The property under discussion is located just north of Arab along Highway 231. The judge ruled the company could not bring any more solid waste onto the land and the owner must submit a plan to clean it up.
This was only a preliminary injunction, the next step will be a full hearing to determine if the judge will make his ruling permanent. No date has been set at this time.
