This page last reviewed December 20, 2011
C & S Waste Solutions of California, Inc. (C & S) provides waste and recycling services in Mendocino, Lake, and eastern Inyo Counties. In December 2011, C & S agreed to pay $13,125.00 in penalties; $9,844.00 to the California Air Pollution Control Fund and $3,281.00 to the Peralta Community College District for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by the ARB showed that C & S failed to comply with the solid waste collection vehicle rule by neglecting to install legally required emission-reduction devices by applicable compliance dates. C & S also failed to properly self-inspect their diesel vehicles to assure that vehicles met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) and Solid Waste Collection Vehicle Program (SWCV). To settle the case, C & S agreed to the $13,125.00 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and SWCV programs in addition to other ARB programs.
