June 2013, Selma Disposal and Recycling, Inc. paid $18,750 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $14,062.50 went to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $4,687.50 went to the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District for the school bus retrofit Supplemental Environmental Project. 

An investigation by the ARB showed that Selma Disposal and Recycling, Inc. failed to comply with the solid waste collection vehicle rule by neglecting to install legally required emission-reduction devices by applicable compliance dates. Selma Disposal and Recycling, Inc. also failed to properly self-inspect their diesel vehicles to assure that vehicles met state smoke emission standards. Selma also failed to report their off road diesel vehicles. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP), Solid Waste Collection Vehicle Program (SWCV), and the In-Use Off Road Diesel Program. To settle the case, Selma Disposal and Recycling, Inc. agreed to the $18,750 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and SWCV and In-Use Off Road Diesel programs in addition to other ARB programs.
