Lowe's Ends Environmental Litigation with $18 Million Settlement

Lowe's will pay $18 million to settle an environmental lawsuit filed by 32 counties, including Riverside. Riverside County will receive $650,375 under the settlement. The company was sued in Alameda County Superior Court last year after a statewide investigation determined that employees at many of its 118 California stores had regularly discarded aerosols, batteries, electronics, paints, solvents and other combustible or corrosive materials in containers bound for landfills not equipped to process or store the substances. Under a settlement certified by Alameda Superior Court Judge George Hernandez, the retailer agreed to pay $12.85 million in penalties, as well as $2 million toward environmental projects intended to enhance consumer protections and $3.17 million toward hazardous waste minimization efforts. Investigators alleged that over a roughly six-year span, Lowe's employees neglected to segregate potentially hazardous materials from other rubbish.

Alameda County Superior Court Orders Lowe's to Pay $18 Million in Hazardous Waste Lawsuit

Lowe's has been ordered to pay $18 million for illegally disposing hazardous waste, including pesticides, batteries, fluorescent bulbs and other toxic materials, following a civil enforcement action filed on April 1, 2014 in Alameda County Superior Court. The suit alleged that more than 100 Lowe's stores throughout the state routinely sent items such as spilled or returned paint or damaged batteries to local landfills that were not permitted to receive the materials. The company also took used batteries and old fluorescent light bulbs collected from its stores' recycling programs and threw them in the trash. The hazardous dumping violations were found by investigators from the California Department of Toxic Substances Control and environmental regulators who conducted inspections of Dumpsters belonging to Lowe's stores. Under the final judgment, Lowe's must pay $12.85 million in civil penalties and costs and $3 million for hazardous waste minimization projects. Another $2 million will fund supplemental environmental projects aimed at consumer protection.
