Village of Rockton Fights Abandoned Sonoco Paper Mill Contamination


Keller Rohrback L.L.P. represents the Village of Rockton in its efforts to make Sonoco Products Company, a paper and plastics manufacturing company, clean up the toxic mess it left when it abandoned its facility in the heart of the Village. Although the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency concluded that the levels of contamination at the site far exceeded state and federal laws and threatens to spread to other sites in town and pollute the river, Sonoco refused to take any action. That changed, however, when Keller Rohrback began working on the case.

Using the experience and skills of the attorneys at Keller Rohrback L.L.P., the Village has taken matters into its own hands and has commenced legal action against Sonoco to protect the health and well-being of its dynamic community. Already Keller Rohrback’s efforts are paying off, as Sonoco has commenced cleaning up the site. Our firm is committed to making Rockton a clean and healthy place to live and visit.
