In October, 2009, Environmental Resources Recycling DBA Valley Recycling agreed to pay $2,000 in penalties; $1,500 to the California Air Pollution Fund and $500 to Peralta Community College District, for violating air quality regulations.  An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Valley Recycling failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards.  ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP).  To settle the case, Valley Recycling agreed to the $2,000 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and other ARB programs.
