CVS Pharmacy settles hazardous waste claims
VENTURA, Calif. (KABC) -- CVS Pharmacy has agreed to pay nearly $14 million to settle claims that it illegally disposed of hazardous waste at many of its California stores.
A Ventura County judge approved the settlement on Wednesday. Two years ago, allegations surfaced that CVS improperly disposed of medical, pharmaceutical and photographic waste over a seven-year period.
Fire and environmental health departments in 45 cities and counties in California will share the money from the $13.75 million settlement.
