Rockland suing New York-based company over $164,000 in unpaid bills

By Heather Steeves, BDN Staff

ROCKLAND, Maine — The City of Rockland filed a lawsuit Tuesday against a company it says owes the city about $164,000.

The city is suing Plan-It Recycling, a New York-based company with an office in Gorham, Maine. The company used to dump construction waste in the Rockland landfill, but at one point it stopped making regular payments and the bills started adding up, the city alleges in Knox County Superior Court documents.

In June 2009, the company agreed to pay the full amount of $228,239 it owed at that time. But since then it has paid only about $64,000, the suit states.

“They made payments for about a year and a half. Then they defaulted,” said the city’s attorney, Kevin Beal, in a phone interview Wednesday.

Plan-It Recycling has not yet filed a response.
