TJX Companies Fined | In Compliance Magazine

The TJX Companies, the parent company to T.J. Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods brands, was ordered to pay a fine of more than $2.7 million for routinely dumping hazardous waste into trash dumpsters.

The civil environment action was filed by 35 California District Attorneys and two City Attorneys and claimed that more than 286 California stores unlawfully handled and disposed of hazardous waste over a five and half year period. Inspections found that the company was sending hazardous waste and materials to landfills that were not permitted to accept these type of products.  In addition to paying a fine, the company has adopted and implemented new policies and procedures to properly handle and dispose of hazardous waste products in their stores in California.
