Mass. DEP fines N.B. waste hauler

BOSTON – The Mass. Department of Environmental Protection penalized New Bedford-based waste hauler ABC Disposal Inc., $1,500 for solid-waste violations related to the dumping of excessive amounts of construction and demolition wood at a landfill in December 2012.

Disposal of wood at Massachusetts landfills or incinerators has been banned since 2006.

DEP conducted a waste-ban inspection at the Fall River landfill on Dec. 3, 2012, the department said in a release. The department said it observed ABC Disposal unloading a wood-filled trailer. Later that day, a second similar-sized trailer attempted to unload at the same landfill. Excessive wood was again immediately apparent before unloading. •
