Victory! San Jose Landfill/Recycler to Clean Up Bay Pollution
Zanker Road Resource Management, a San Jose landfill and recycling facility, has agreed to clean up its rainy-season runoff pollution of San Francisco Bay and wetlands that include the Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge.
Baykeeper sued Zanker after the facility's own sampling reports showed it has been violating limits for aluminum, copper, iron, zinc and other pollutants in its storm water runoff.
Our settlement agreement with Zanker commits the company to significantly reduce its pollution and also to provide funds to two local nonprofits working to protect wetlands.
