Sonoma County health officials have substantially reduced the fines that the region’s largest waste hauler will face for having too much garbage coming into its recycling centers.
Instead of the $5,000-per-day penalties that North Bay Corp. was facing beginning Dec. 1 for exceeding the allowable garbage levels at its Santa Rosa recycling centers, the company will now face fines of $1,000 per day.
The accommodation could end up saving the company more than $200,000 in fines if it remains out of compliance with regulations through the end of the year, which seems likely.
