ALJ recommends fine for landscaper who hauled waste without license.
Where a truck filled with grass clippings and leaves bore a business name related to landscaping, ALJ John B. Spooner found in a default proceeding that it was a fair inference that the van was removing landscaping waste generated by respondent’s business. Since the company was not registered to haul its own waste, it violated City law. ALJ Spooner recommended a $1,000 fine. Business Integrity Comm’n v. Top Choice Landscaping, Inc.
