Class action lawsuit filed against Elkhart recycling facility

ELKHART, Ind. — An effort is underway to get neighbors on Elkhart's westside to join a class action lawsuit against a former wood recycling facility.

ABC57 got hold of court documents that confirmed a judge granted the class action status last week.

The lawsuit could include hundreds of people who lived around Soil Solutions.

Neighbors originally filed the suit stating that dust and other emissions posed a health threat.

It was first filed against VIM Recycling which was recently purchased by Soil Solutions.
