Buckingham Slate, which produces Arvonia slate, was recently fined $4,000 by the Mine Safety and Health Administration because a "waste receptacle [trash can] was not covered."

Additionally, the citation said that "the receptacle was full" and "it could be smelled" and there were "flies flying in and around the receptacle."

The citation also claimed: "Management engaged in aggravated conduct constituting more than ordinary negligence by allowing this condition to exist."

No word on exactly how long the smelly trash can was unkempt.
