This article from the Boston Globe describes the citations and in some cases fines issued in the last round of state inspections. State Inspections have been significantly increased recently, and more than 80 companies were issued citations after inspectors found banned material in their waste loads. In the cases of repeat-offenders, fines of up to $1500 were issued.
The article does a good job of explaining how the business owners who received citations took simple steps to improve their operations and ensure proper disposal. Call our hotline to learn how RecyclingWorks can help your organization dispose of all waste responsibly and efficiently.
