An Arizona plant operated by Pennsylvania-based Dlubak Glass has been hit with a $120,000 fine for improper storage and recycling of CRTs.

During a routine inspection of the company’s Yuma, Arizona plant, Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) officials discovered broken CRT glass “throughout the five-acre facility,” an ADEQ press release states. Soil stains were also detected, with lead levels “as much as 75 times more than the maximum federal and state exceedance level of five milligrams per liter.”

In court, the company agreed to pay the $120,000 fine and store all glass indoors in clearly marked containers. Soil cleanup has also been performed.

Yuma is also the site of a now-notorious CRT abandonment by Dow Management in 2013. Approximately 3,000 tons of glass were left behind by Dow and a “voluntary” cleanup process has been undertaken by the company’s former suppliers, ADEQ told E-Scrap News.
