In 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency required polluters to pay over $110 million in civil penalties and $12 billion in environmental cleanup and other projects, the highest totals ever according to Waste Business Journal.
In a press release, the EPA stated that, when completed, the enforcement actions should reduce pollution by 1.4 billion pounds.
Staying compliant with waste disposal regulations is important not only to avoid the risk of monetary penalties, but also to maintain a reputation for environmental care and minimize the environmental impact of business operations.
