ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

[FRL-6536-5]


Notice of Proposed Purchaser Agreement Pursuant to the 
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 
1980, as Amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice; request for public comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended by the Superfund 
Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (``CERCLA''), 42 U.S.C. 
9601-9675, notice is hereby given that a proposed purchaser agreement 
(``Purchaser Agreement'') associated with the Metro Container 
Corporation Site in Trainer, Pennsylvania was executed by the 
Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Justice and is 
now subject to public comment, after which the United States may modify 
or withdraw its consent if comments received disclose facts or 
considerations which indicate that the Purchaser Agreement is 
inappropriate, improper, or inadequate. The Purchaser Agreement would 
resolve certain potential EPA claims under section 107 of CERCLA, 42 
U.S.C. 9607, against Trainer Industries, L.L.C. (``Purchaser''). The 
settlement would require the Purchaser to, among other things, pay the 
sum of $15,000 to the EPA Hazardous Substance Superfund, provide an 
irrevocable right of access to EPA, and record notice of the agreement 
in the local land records.
    For thirty (30) days following the date of publication of this 
notice, the Agency will receive written comments relating to the 
proposed Purchaser Agreement. The Agency's response to any comments 
received will be available for public inspection at the U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency, Region III, 1650 Arch Street, 
Philadelphia, PA 19103.

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before March 16, 2000.
