Blakeney Companies Inc., the contractor in charge of demolition at the former BF Goodrich site in Miami, Oklahoma has filed for bankruptcy.
The site has been in various stages of demolition for years, but problems with asbestos and personal safety have prevented progress.
Together along with the Oklahoma Department of Labor and the State Attorney General, a conferred effort is taking place to move demolition efforts forward.
George R. Blakeney was served noncompliance citations for his handling of regulated and non-regulated materials at the site.
“There still is a fair amount of debris, regulated and non-regulated that needs to be removed and a couple of buildings that need to be addressed,” Miami Director of Emergency Management Glenda Longan said
Demolition start a little over a year ago. The plant closed down in 1986.
