Clean Rock site plan changes go before planners Monday



By SCOTT BUTKI / Staff Writer


Under a proposed site plan change, Clean Rock Industries Inc. would add an 8-foot landscaping berm to its plant at 1469 Oak Ridge Place plant in Hagerstown.

The company wants to make the change in response to past community requests, Mike Gobner, Clean Rock president, said Thursday.

Clean Rock is not requesting a capacity change or an operational change, Gobner said.

If the requested changes are approved, the company will build an 8-foot berm where none existed.

The company is also asking to increase its maximum stock pile size to 35 feet, where previously it was less than 30 feet.

This change was requested because the company wants to consolidate stock piles on the property, Gobner said.

County planner Lisa Pietro verified that the changes will not affect operations or capacity.

The issue goes before the Washington County Planning Commission at its 7 p.m. meeting Monday in the County Commissioners meeting room at the County Administration Building.

The company also plans to place a slit fence along a proposed earthen berm.

The changes are unrelated to seven citations the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulations issued against the company in November 2000. The citations followed inspections from Sept. 14 through Sept. 19, 2000.

The Florida-based U.S. Plastic Lumber Co. acquired Clean Rock in December 1999.

Bruce Rosetto, counsel for U.S. Plastic Lumber, has not returned phone calls in recent weeks.

Clean Rock, which opened in Baltimore in 1990 and moved to Hagerstown in 1991, receives petroleum-contaminated soil and converts it to asphalt. The facility also accepts rubble and turns it into usable material for road base.
