Description

WSTM-TV (Syracuse, N.Y.) "uncovered evidence of fraud in the trash hauling industry in Onondaga County. After checking through 12 years of official records, (the station) found significant differences in weights for trucks belonging to Ace Sanitary Haulers. The investigation revealed that Ace had been placing weights in its trucks in a scheme to dump garbage without paying. It sparked a probe by state and federal authorities which involved widespread fraud throughout the trash hauling industry."
