    Lawsuit against Seattle over head-tax meetings moves forward, but repeal vote stands

    Seattle e-recycling company not so green, federal charges say

    The Northwest's largest recycler of electronic waste has defrauded customers and auditors for years, falsifying documents and defying environmental certifications, according to federal charges filed Wednesday. Prosecutors accused Craig Lorch and Jeffrey Zirkle, owners and CEOs of Total Reclaim, Inc., of conspiracy, saying they falsely advertised the environmental friendliness of their services and shipped hazardous waste abroad to be processed by Chinese manual laborers in toxic working conditions. A statement from Lorch issued Thursday claimed that he and Zirkle had already apologized and took responsibility for the actions of which they're accused. Total Reclaim collected millions of dollars to process electronic equipment from the City of Seattle, University of Washington and - formerly its largest customer - the Washington Materials Management and Financing Authority, a semi-public group that operates the E-Cycle Washington program with the state Department of Ecology (DOE).
