Sunny Farms Landfill Paying Over $3 Million For Penalties

Sunny Farms Landfill will have to pay over $3 million in penalties. The Ohio EPA and Ohio Attorney General David Yost made the announcement Friday.

Sunny Farms will pay $1.71 million in civil penalties to resolve past violations in water pollution, solid waste, and air pollution control laws. Of these fines, $1.1 million is going to the Ohio EPA and $600,000 is going to a trust fund called “The Fostoria, Ohio Community Trust”.

Another $2.01 million will be charged to the landfill for underreported and mischaracterized fees in regards to waste entering landfill facilities.
