Target Corporation To Pay $22.5 Million Settlement For Environmental Violations - KHSL

Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey, together with 20 other California District Attorneys, the state Attorney General and the City Attorneys in San Diego and Los Angeles announced today that a judge in Oakland has ordered the Minnesota-based Target Corporation to pay $22.5 million as part of a settlement of a civil environmental prosecution.

The judgment is the culmination of a civil enforcement lawsuit filed in Alameda County two years ago claiming that more than 290 Target stores and distribution centers throughout the state handled and disposed of various hazardous wastes and materials improperly.

The investigation began in 2005. Alleged violations included improper storage, transportation and disposal of bleach, paint, pesticides, batteries, light bulbs and other hazardous materials. Prosecutors accused the retail giant of cutting corners for the bottom line -- chemicals returned by customers or found to be defective were poured down the drain, tossed into dumpsters and trucked to landfills not equipped for hazardous waste. Stores also kept incompatible and combustible liquids, like ammonia and bleach, side-by-side on shelves and poured them into dumpsters mixed together, creating fire and other safety hazards,prosecutors said.
