CHICAGO (May 30, 2006) - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 has reached an agreement with Circuitronics L.L.C., Wheaton, Ill., to settle alleged hazardous waste violations. A penalty of $21,362 has been paid.

Circuitronics, located at 201 N. Gables Blvd., was cited for violating Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requirements for managing hazardous waste including failure to: get a complete design and installation assessment from a registered engineer for its new hazardous waste tank systems, provide a complete description of emergency equipment in its contingency plan, institute annual personnel training, have an emergency coordinator familiar with all aspects of the contingency plan including location of the plan and training records.

The company manufactures printed circuit boards and performs plating operations at its facility. Under RCRA, EPA regulates hazardous waste from production to final disposal.
