Three Native American environmental groups have filed a lawsuit against the U.S. EPA, alleging the agency cut a special deal behind closed doors to minimize pollution controls needed to reduce haze-causing nitrogen oxide emissions at the Navajo Generating Station in which the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation owns the large share among multiple owners. The complaint alleges the EPA accepted the proposal of its Technical Working Group, composed of the Central Arizona Water Conservation District, the Environmental Defense Fund, the Gila River Indian Community, the Navajo Nation, Salt River Project, U.S. Department of the Interior and Western Resource Advocates, but shut out the other tribes who objected to less stringent pollution controls.
Eco International to Pay $9,180 Fine in Settlement with Environmental Protection Agency
Oct 9 15
Eco International will pay a $9,180 fine and clean up tons of e-waste at its shuttered facility, under a settlement agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency. EPA inspections in 2012 of Eco International's Vestal processing facility, and the company's Hallstead, Pennsylvania, storage facility found the company was storing 13,000 tons of lead-laden CRTs and crushed glass. Much of this glass had been accumulating since 2010, when the international demand for many recycled electronics began to decline. Under the agreement, Eco International will ship the remaining glass to a "properly licensed" facility by November and clean the areas where the CRT glass had been handled and stored. Eco International ceased e-waste operations in Vestal and closed the facility two years ago. Though Eco International stopped receiving and processing e-waste in October, it continued to operate at their Hallstead, PA site in order to finish properly sorting and disposing of their remaining inventory of CRT glass.
