Burrtec Waste Industries, Inc. Settlement
Burrtec Waste Industries, Inc. and its Affiliates Settle For $67,500
In December 2022, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with Burrtec Waste Industries, Inc. and its Affiliates (Burrtec), with its principal location in Fontana, California, for the company’s violation of CARB’s air quality regulations.
An investigation conducted by CARB staff showed that Burrtec failed to meet the applicable Truck and Bus (TB) Regulation requirements for multiple heavy-duty diesel vehicles in their fleet. CARB documented violations as they related to the
TB Regulation (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 13, § 2025).
To settle the case, Burrtec agreed to the penalty of $1,250 per violation for a total of $67,500. The $67,500 will go to CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality.
Burrtec has elected to utilize the low-use vehicle exemption (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 13, § 2025(p)(4)); credit provision (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 13, § 2025(j)); and phase-in option (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 13, § 2025(i)) in the TB Regulation to come into compliance.
