Global eRecyclers Inc. has agreed to pay a fine and correct its
business practices to settle environmental concerns, according
to a consent order it signed with Californias Department
of Toxic Substances Control.
During a July 2012
site inspection, the agency cited the Santa Fe Springs,
Calif.-based electronics recycler for breaking cathode ray tube
(CRT) glass without having a closure plan. The department said
the CRTs werent held in a structurally sound container.
Citations were also issued for alleged fire safety code
violations. Both of the issues have since been addressed,
according to the consent order.

Global eRecyclers was
financial unable to pay the $15,500 penalty and was instead
assessed a $500 fine due before July 15, the order said. The
state noted that it can collect the full amount of the fine if
it discovers the financial information from the recycler is
inaccurate or incorrect.
