Lowe's Companies News
Lowe's Cos. agreed to pay a $500,000 penalty stemming from environmental-related violations by the home-improvement retailer's contractors, while also agreeing to implement a program to minimize lead dust during renovations.
Lowe's Home Centers , the No. 2 U.S. home improvement retail chain, has agreed to pay a $500,000 penalty for violating federal rules governing lead paint exposure, U.S. authorities said on Thursday. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Justice said Lowe's had also agreed to implement a new compliance program at more than 1,700 stores nationwide. Lead-based paint was banned in the United States in 1978 but remains in many older homes and apartments. An EPA investigation found that Lowe's could not provide documentation to prove that contractors it hired to work at 13 stores across nine states were certified by the agency, or had used its approved kits to test for lead paint at work sites, the EPA said.
