2006: Covanta Repeatedly Fined for Dioxin Releases, Other Toxins

October 9, 2006

In New Jersey, the Covanta company has been REPEATEDLY fined for releasing excessive amounts of dioxin and other toxic emissions from its Essex County plant.

In the past year, New Jersey regulators have ordered Covanta to pay more than $112,000 in fines for violations at ALL three of its waste-to-energy plants in the state.

The Rutgers Environmental Law Center at Rutgers University in New Jersey has filed a notice of its intent to sue Covanta over repeated Clean Air Act violations at the Essex plant, the state's largest garbage incinerator.
