Paying up.

Paying Up

Environmental Transportation, Inc. of Little Rock is cleaning up its act after being hit with a $25,000 fine by the state Pollution Control & Ecology. So far, ETI has anted up $10,000 of the fine, agreed to clean up spills on the premises and put itself up for sale.

The company, which cleans out tanker trucks, was cited by PC&E for storing hazardous chemicals on its premises.

"When we got hold of their list of what they were washing out, we were appalled," says Steve Weaver, chief legal counsel for PC&E. ETI never had a sewer permit and Weaver says the company illegally stored hazardous waste on its premises or shipped some of it to a sister company in Memphis for disposal.

ETI owners Jack and Norma Chase also owned a daycare center -- You're A Little Darling -- on ETI property.
