EDCO Disposal Corporation Settlement
EDCO Disposal Corporation Settle For $237,500
In December 2022, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with EDCO Disposal Corporation (EDCO), with its principal location in Lemon Grove, California, for the company’s violation of CARB’s air quality regulations.
An investigation conducted by CARB staff showed that EDCO 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), and violations of the Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and bush Voucher Incentive Program (HVIP) Agreements.
To settle the case, EDCO agreed to the penalty of $1,250 per violation of the TB Regulation for a total of $12,500, which will be deposited into CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund to provide funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality. EDCO shall also pay back $225,000 to CARB to resolve the claims regarding alleged violations of the HVIP Agreeements.
EDCO 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 as compliance options.
