DOVER, Del. (WBOC/AP)- Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Secretary Collin O'Mara has ordered the shutdown of a Kent County recycling facility for repeated violations of state regulations.

Thursday's order comes more than six months after regulators first took action to suspend a permit issued to Mike Davidson Enterprises in 2009.

DNREC officials said the facility located west of Camden has failed to address repeated environmental violations regarding the processing and storage of construction and demolition waste and shown a "wholesale disregard" of state regulations and ignored a cease & desist order.

According to DNREC, the suspension of the facility's permit is in effect until it demonstrates compliance.
