2 Waste Removal Companies Targeted In State Crackdown

A Billerica waste hauling company has paid $62,500 to settle claims that it illegally dumped multiple loads of construction and demolition waste at an unauthorized site in Methuen.

Attorney General Maura Healey says W.L. French Excavating Corp. violated the state's solid waste disposal laws by dumping 29 loads of waste, including concrete, bricks and asphalt.

A separate complaint was filed against New Hampshire-based waste removal company Gigs LLC for allegedly dumping more than 244 loads of construction and demolition debris at the Methuen site.

The complaint against Gigs seeks civil penalties for alleged violations of the state's Solid Waste Management Act, along with a permanent injunction requiring that the company remove and properly dispose of the waste it illegally dumped.

Healey says her office is cracking down on illegal dumping.
