Honeywell fined $500,000 for hazardous waste violations

Under a consent judgment, Honeywell Inc. was ordered to pay $500,000 for hazardous waste violations in Mohave County, Ariz. In September 2005, ADEQ officials discovered that a Honeywell aircraft landing systems facility in Kingman, Ariz. had been operating two natural gas-fired hazardous waste treatment units without the required permit.

Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard said in a press release that the penalty reflects the serious nature of the violations. “These laws protect our communities, and I will continue to seek penalties from companies that violate these laws,” he said.

In addition to operating without a permit, Honeywell Kingman was also cited for failing to submit signed manifests, failing to properly label each container and tank as hazardous waste, failing to inform employees of proper handling and emergency procedures and failing to comply with personnel training requirements.

The consent judgment is subject to court approval.
