This concerns the neighborhood at State and Shelby to English/Bates to Southeastern streets. We are very concerned about the harmful affects the Omni Source shredder at 311 S. Shelby Street Indianapolis, Indiana 46202 is having on this communities health. Previously owned by Capital Metals. Listed in book as Indiana Auto Shredding The air is full of fine metals and smells very bad most of the time, with a metallic smell that causes extreme headaches. The noise has to be at or above the level that causes hearing damage and harmful health effects. Residents living over one block from the shredder, at Southeastern Avenue,with windows shut, and the noise is still loud enough to disturb the peace and comfort in our homes. Many nights being awaken from sleep in the middle of the night. (If you can get to sleep at all.) Not to mention the effects it is having on our hearing. Most of the time the smell is so strong, it fills our houses and headaches are inevitable. No one should have to live this way. The shredder is running almost none stop. 24-7 Even on No-Zone days. During very late hours of the night 10pm to 6 am, and on weekends. IF nothing else, this company needs to be good neighbors. Stop running 24 hours a day-7 days a week and on weekends. There are families living here, with children. Many of the residents in this area are on oxygen. Most have serious health issues. Cancer, emphysema, asthma,chronic coughs,weakness, allergies, Hearing loss, and ringing in the ears, and sleep deprivation, to mention a few. The residents of this neighborhood have contacted the Majors office, the Governor, the EPA, the Marion county health department. OSHA. And nothing is being done about this issue. Help us get a voice; Please sign this form. Help stop this 24-hour contamination of our lives. Thank you very much
