DEP, Local Officials Tour Crazy Aaron's Putty World, Celebrate Remediation Of Brownfield Site In Montgomery County

Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Patrick McDonnell and local officials Thursday visited Crazy Aaron’s Putty World in Norristown, Montgomery County to celebrate the remediation, redevelopment, and revitalization of an area brownfield.
Crazy Aaron’s Putty World entered DEP’s Land Recycling Program in 2017 and worked quickly to conduct soil sampling and remove historic underground storage tanks before moving its headquarters and operations to the site.
“The Pennsylvania Brownfields is a program that works for communities and businesses.” said DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “It works at getting sites remediated and brought back into productive use, it drives economic development, and it works to further revitalize places like Norristown and we are happy to welcome Crazy Aaron’s Putty World to the family of businesses that are making productive use of former brownfields.”
Crazy Aaron’s Putty World creates non-toxic thinking putty, employs many individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities, and is bringing new jobs to Norristown.
DEP and Crazy Aaron’s will continue to work together to further ensure any remaining contamination is properly managed to prevent exposure.
