MAYOR MCGINN ISSUES STERN WARNING TO WASTE MANAGEMENT; SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES OUTLINES HEFTY FINES
Posted On: Jul 27, 2012

City of Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn has issued a stern warning to Waste Management for putting our neighborhoods at risk of a public health crisis. 

In a letter to representatives of the company, McGinn outlines the City's right to impose significant penalties for Waste Management’s ongoing failure to negotiate with recycle drivers and its deliberate sabotage of the bargaining process. McGinn states that Waste Management can be fined "up to $250,000 a day" for service disruptions starting on August 1.

Mayor McGinn's letter can be viewed here.

Ray Hoffman, Director of the City of Seattle's Department of Public Utilities, goes a step further. In his letter to the company, he states that the City is likely to impose fines of up to $1.25 million/day if garbage, recycle, and yard waste service interruptions extends to August 1.

View Mr. Hoffman's letter to Waste Management here.

Both McGinn and Hoffman urge Waste Management to take immediate steps to restore service to its customers.
