UPS reached a settlement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to resolve alleged hazardous waste violations at 1,160 facilities nationwide, according to a news release Wednesday.
The alleged regulatory violations included a failure to make land disposal determinations and conduct proper on-site hazardous waste management, per the release. It will also pay a civil penalty of $5.3 million.
The parcel delivery giant has three years to come into regulatory compliance at the facilities, located across 45 states and Puerto Rico. Compliance focus areas include accurate hazardous waste determinations, proper employee training, timely hazardous waste reporting and proper on-site management.
