This page last reviewed December 29, 2011

In January 2011 D’Angelus Disposal, Inc. agreed to pay $2,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $1,500.00 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $500.00 will go to Peralta Community College District to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) program.

An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that D’Angelus Disposal, Inc. failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to insure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. D’Angelus Disposal, Inc. also failed to comply with the solid waste collection vehicle rule by neglecting to install legally required emission-reduction devices by applicable compliance dates. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP), Emission Control Label Program (ECL) and Solid Waste Collection Vehicle Program (SWCV). To settle the case, D’Angelus Disposal, Inc. agreed to the $2,000.00 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and SWCV programs, and other ARB programs.
