The state EPA's Department of Toxic Substances Control and All County Environmental & Restoration Inc. of Anaheim agree that the unauthorized hauling happened Sept. 11, 2010, through Dec. 12, 2013, according to the consent order officials from both signed on Aug. 22.
The department discovered All County Environmental & Restoration was out of compliance on or about this past July 17.
Under the order, the company agreed to pay the fine and send the state department a copy of the proper hazardous waste hauler registration by a specified date or risk of further sanctions.
