99 Cents Only Stores to Pay $2.36M for Dumping Retail Waste

Discount retailer 99 Cents Only Stores became the latest company to agree to pay millions of dollars to counties and cities across the state to settle claims that its California locations illegally dumped toxic retail waste.

The $2.36-million San Joaquin Superior Court judgment was announced Tuesday. It came a day after authorities said supermarket giant Safeway agreed to pay nearly $10 million to settle claims its California stores illegally dumped household chemicals and medicines, including cleaners, hair dyes and nail polish.
