RePlanet Recycling Charged for Death of Employee in Rancho Cucamonga

RANCHO CUCAMONGA – The District Attorney’s office announced today that RePlanet was charged with the death of an employee who has crushed at their recycling facility nearly 3 years ago. The charges include two felony counts in connection with the death of their employee, 61-year-old Salvador Garcia.

RePlanet is facing the charges because they allegedly violated worker safety rules which caused Garcia’s August 20, 2013, death. Garcia, a RePlanet truck driver at the time was crushed by a 35,000-pound earth mover at the 9910 6th Street Rancho Cucamonga facility.

“We believe very strongly in the law that requires employers to provide a safe and healthful place of employment.This case reflects District Attorney Ramos’ ongoing commitment to protect workers from illegal and dangerous practices,” Poston said.

The arraignment is scheduled for August 18 at the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court. The San Bernardino County District Attorney officials said that if convicted RePlanet faces a $1.5 million fine.
