This page last reviewed February 8, 2012

In January 2012, Nu Way Roll Off Service (Nu Way) agreedto pay $5,600.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $4,200.00 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $1,400.00 will go to Peralta Community College District to fund emissions education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology program.

An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Nu Way failed to update its trash trucks with diesel particulate filters after affixing proper labels according to a pre-set schedule. ARB documented violations as they related to the Solid Waste Collection Vehicle Regulation (SWCV). To settle the case, Nu Way agreed to the $5,600.00 penalty and to comply with the SWCV rule and other ARB programs.
