EL PASO, Texas (AP) - A company contracted to recycle New York City sewage sludge on a West Texas ranch will be fined $12,800 for mishandling 160 tons of the waste material.
MERCO Joint Venture spread the material in September on about 20 acres of rangeland in Sierra Blanca only to discover later the sludge did not meet Texas standards and should have gone to a New York recycling plant.
