Allied Waste Services Settlement
$11,250 in Fines Paid by Allied Waste Services
The Allied Waste Services, Rancho Cordova, CA paid $8,438 in penalties in April 2008 to the California Air Pollution Fund and $2,812 to the Peralta Community College District for distribution to participating California Council on Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) colleges for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by ARB showed that Allied Waste Services failed to properly self-inspect their diesel fleet to insure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to PSIP. To settle this case, Allied Waste Services agreed to pay the $11,250 penalty and to comply with PSIP and other ARB regulations.
