Coyote Land Company Cleanup Completed

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection announced nearly 20,000 cubic yards of solid waste at the Panama City site has been cleaned up, and it is no longer an environmental hazard.

The Coyote Land Co. Waste Disposal Facility cleanup in Panama City, Fla., has been completed, meaning the closed facility is no longer an environmental hazard, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection announced. Nearly 20,000 cubic yards of solid waste were cleaned up through a "pollution prevention project" with an expected value of more than $500,000 that satisfies a penalty agreed upon by Phoenix Construction in an unrelated 2010 consent order. Phoenix Construction chose to carry out the cleanup project in lieu of paying a monetary penalty, according to the state agency's announcement.

The facility is located at 2101 East 9th St. in Panama City. It was previously permitted as a transfer station for solid waste, but it was "an environmental hazard and community concern for years, particularly since the station closed in 2011," after an application for permit renewal was denied on Sept. 17, 2010. according to DEP. An administrative law judge upheld the denial, and an order to close the site in accordance with Florida Administrative Code was issued Aug. 22, 2011. The owner later abandoned the site, according to the agency.

"I'm pleased to see this cleanup complete and that this site is no longer a threat to the environment," said DEP Northwest District Director Shawn Hamilton. "The cooperation we received from the city and the county was crucial to this success."
