Old Goodyear Tire Plant Demolition Stopped

The demolition of the old Goodyear Tire plant in Hopkins County is not finished yet, but the work has been stopped.

The Kentucky Environmental Protection and Labor Departments got complaints of unauthorized demolition and handling of asbestos material on the site in Madisonville.

Inspectors found violations of state and federal asbestos rules and cited S & S Salvage of Providence, Kentucky.

A certified asbestos contractor must do a thorough cleanup before any more work is done.
