Franklin County Environmental Judge Daniel Hawkins has ordered Ebrahim Hooshiarnejad of Columbus, Ohio, to clean up his multiple recycling properties to keep them safe.
Last year, Hooshiarnejad’s 13-acre Marion Road site went up in flames due to a Phoenix Recycling worker’s discarded cigarette, and the fire caused approximately 8 million in damages.
The Columbus Dispatch highlights the new regulations:
