SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - Crews are cleaning up contaminated debris from an abandoned industrial property in Saginaw.

The Saginaw News reports (https://bit.ly/1SkH4nO ) the project at the former Baker Perkins factory is facilitated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the Saginaw County Land Bank Authority.

The Land Bank now owns the property. Cleanup began June 22 and it’s scheduled for completion by the end of August.

The EPA says work includes disposal of debris and wood contaminated with asbestos as well as removal of small containers and drums.

Saginaw County Land Bank Authority Chairman Tim Novak says a previous owner of the property demolished some of the buildings and recovered scrap metal from inside, but stopped short of cleaning up the remainder of the debris from demolition.
