Santa Rosa, Calif.-based North Bay Corp. faces $13.4 million in fines from years of alleged contract violations. In addition to that issue, North Bay’s request to operate a regional recycling center in Santa Rosa has been rejected, and the company must invest $4.5 million to upgrade one of its two Santa Rosa recycling centers, which have operated for more than a year even though a cease-and-desist order was issued from the county Department of Environmental Health.
The Press Democrat has more information:
It’s been a rotten couple of months for the region’s largest garbage hauler.
In September, Sonoma County rejected the North Bay Corp.’s request to operate a regional recycling center in Santa Rosa, upping the stakes in the standoff over the company’s unpermitted Standish Avenue facility.
Then earlier this month, Santa Rosa informed the company that it faces $13.4 million in potential fines from years of alleged contract violations.
