New York trucking co. will pay $325K to Mass.

Posted 11/11/13

BOSTON – A New York-based trucking company has agreed to pay $325,000 to settle claims that it failed to pay the Mass. Department of Environmental Protection fees covering the costs of handling and transporting oil and other hazardous wastes within the commonwealth, Attorney General Martha Coakley announced last week.

The state’s Hazardous Waste Management Act requires all hazardous-waste transporters to pay quarterly transporter fees based on the quantity of hazardous waste transported. The fees are collected to ensure safe transport of the wastes. According to the consent judgment, entered in Suffolk Superior Court, Price Trucking Co. failed to pay more than $191,000 in hazardous-waste transporter fees to the department in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Price Trucking also allegedly failed to submit reports tracking the volume of transported hazardous waste between July 2009 and January 2010, exposing it to up to $175,000 in penalties.

Coakley’s office filed a complaint against the company in November 2011. According to the lawsuit, Price Trucking fell behind in its quarterly hazardous-waste transporter-fee payments in late 2008 and continued to fail to make the required payments. The department suspended Price Trucking’s transporter license in January 2010. •
