Clean Air Settlements with Two Industrial Laundry Companies Minimize Emissions in New England Communities
The settlements will require two industrial laundry companies operating in New England to obtain required Clean Air Act permits containing measures designed to minimize air emissions and protect air quality around the communities where they operate. The companies, UniFirst Corp. and Cintas Corp., will also pay a total of nearly $460,000 in penalties to settle EPA claims that they operated industrial laundries in New England without required air permits.
