As part of a settlement with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Collins Inc. of Clinton, Iowa has agreed to a “re-lamping” of its facility with low-mercury fixtures at a projected cost of $76,952.

The re-lamping will be a greater expense than the civil penalty to be paid.

“A re-lamping project involving the replacement of high-mercury fluorescent fixtures and bulbs with low-mercury fluorescent fixtures and bulbs at its facility with a projected eligible cost of $76,952.00,” The EPA settlement says.

The “re-lamping” will cost more than the $31,379 administrative civil penaltypaid by Collins Inc., a manufacturer of metal racks and shelving brackets for refrigerators.

The EPA filed a complaint against Collins, Inc. after an inspection found the company was storing hazardous waste without a permit and failed to manage used oil in accordance with regulations.
