Yuma glass facility to pay $120K penalty

PHOENIX — Arizona Department of Environmental Quality officials say a
glass company has agreed to pay a $120,000 penalty for hazardous waste
violations at its Yuma facility.

ADEQ announced the settlement with Dlubak Glass Co., Inc., on Friday.

The fee is part of a consent judgment handed down by the Maricopa County
Superior Court.

The agency cited the company for its storage and recycling of cathode ray tube
glass.

Inspectors say they found broken glass throughout the 5-acre facility as well
as stained soil.

They say the tainted soil extended 20 feet into an adjoining orchard.

Investigators say samples from the property showed levels of lead that were 75
times more than the federal and state levels.

Dlubak Glass is considered one of the largest American recyclers of cathode ray
tube glass.
