LEBANON COUNTY TRUCKING FIRM CITED FOR BACKHAULING

 LEBANON COUNTY TRUCKING FIRM CITED FOR BACKHAULING
 HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a three-month


investigation, the Pennsylvania State Police today filed 15 citations against Sanger Trucking Company, Fredericksburg, Lebanon County, Pa., for backhauling.
 Troopers from the State Police Jonestown, Lebanon County, Station, filed the citations against the trucking firm's owner, Daniel Sanger, before District Justice William Schadler, Jonestown.
 Garbage, ranging from paper waste to refuse, were transported to dump sites primarily in the state of Indiana. On the return trip, food products such as bulk cornmeal and soft drinks were delivered to numerous Pennsylvania companies.
 "Under a 1990 state law, it is illegal to transport food or produce intended for human consumption in a vehicle that has been used to transport municipal, residual or hazardous waste," said Col. Glenn A. Walp, commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police. "Once a vehicle transports waste, it can never be used to transport food in Pennsylvania -- regardless of how the food is packaged or how thoroughly the truck is cleaned."
 The violations occurred from October 1990, through April 1991, and involved seven different semi-trailers. If convicted, Sanger faces penalties ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 per violation and possible forfeiture of the vehicles.
