Zurik: Feds visit Tangipahoa Parish landfill
INDEPENDENCE, LA (WVUE) - The FBI have visited the Tangipahoa Parish landfill near Independence. the landfill manager confirmed to FOX 8 staff.
The FBI stopped by midday Friday, but we don't have any details of what they were looking for.
Earlier this month, we reported that federal authorities had launched an investigation into the parish landfill, a Baton Rouge-area recycling company and the state Department of Environmental Quality.
The investigation appears to center around payments made by the state to the company for recycled tire shreds that were delivered to the landfill.
