TruGreen Landcare Settlement
TruGreen Landcare Case Settles for $11,000
The TruGreen Landcare in January of 2009 has paid $11,000, in penalties to the California Air Pollution Control Fund for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by ARB showed that TruGreen Landcare failed to properly self-inspect their diesel fleet to insure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP). To settle this case, TruGreen, San Jose, California agreed to pay $8,250, penalty to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, $1,375 to the Peralta Community College District and $1,375 to the California Pollution Control Financial Authority and to comply with the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program and other ARB regulations.
