Quid Pro Quo? Newsday Reports Long Island Press Paper-Dumping

november 4, 2004  06:16 pm
Long Island Press has discovered that an employee of one of its carriers dumped papers at a salvage yard on at least two occasions, reports Newsday. The independent carrier has since fired the employee. According to the Newsday story, a separate (and unidentified) newspaper distributor says that he first notified Long Island Press about the dumping 15 weeks ago, and raised the issue again a couple of weeks ago -- when he saw enough papers being offloaded at the salvage yard "to fill a dump truck." Long Island Press recently ran stories about Newsday dumping papers, and Newsday is now under federal investigation for its circulation practices.
