A Cherry Street company has been fined $18,758 by the state for violating Air Pollution Control and Hazardous Waste Management regulations, according to a press release from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection.
During an inspection last year, the DEP found that Northland Industrial Truck Co., Inc., "generated odors when operating its wastewater evaporation system, failed to follow good engineering practices with regard to its evaporator stack height, and failed to comply with waste oil management requirements," the release states.
The company -- which sells, services and leases material-handling lift equipment -- agreed via a consent order to correct all violations, and part of its fine includes paying for first responder equipment for the Shrewsbury Fire Department.
