An Onondaga County recycling company has filed a lawsuit against Feher Rubbish Removal after the trash hauler's sudden closure.
According to the suit filed last week, Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency (OCRRA) says Feher did not pay for trash dropped off in March, April or May.
The total cost adds up to $842,000 including late fees.
According to OCRRA, Feher was the largest hauler in the county, leaving many without service when it closed up shop in May.
The agency worked with other haulers to pick up what was left at the curb.
"This was certainly an unexpected concern for us and so we're looking at ways to continue saving such that we can continue our operational services that we offer the community,” said Kristen Lawton, an OCRRA spokesperson. “It was definitely something that was unexpected to us and we're doing our best to manage."
Feher is also being sued by Solvay Bank for more than a half a million dollars.
