6:04 pm
fair. the department of weights and measures has noticed the violation and we're told us if we will finally faced further civil penalties. but the chain has previously been sanctioned statewide by the district attorney for similar over edges and as a result, if you were overcharged at any safeway, you are supposed to get the item for free, in most cases, unless it is alcohol or tobacco or some other things. then you get the lowest advertised price plus a $5 gift card. >> the campbell soup co. is closing its doors in sacramento after 65 years of operation. hundreds of workers will lose their jobs including many that have worked at the plant on franklin street for a large part of their lives. checkey bedford tells us when their oldest facility will shut down for good. >> a typical weekday routine, an early morning caravan of workers are arriving at the south sacramento campbell soup plant. although it had been rumored, little did the 700 plant workers

6:17 pm
>> you bring them and ... drop them off ... >> we do not want them in the landfills. >> because california once the recycle. and we all pay for it. a six to $10 surcharge every time you buy a new tv or computer goes to making sure that your old one does not end up polluting the environment. why? because old-style tvs and monitors are made with a cathode ray tube. this class is filled with toxic lead and the goal is to keep it out of the landfills. but now it will end up there after all. >> we tried to get ahead of this. >> he is with the state department of toxic substances control. >> you can do the math, there are millions and millions of pounds of glass entering the recycling stream every year in california.
6:18 pm

6:20 pm
ready yet. >> we're not going to prove someone recycle and something must know that it is safe and effective. >> most consumers that they the recycling fee paid in good faith, and willingly. they want their products recycle and so i think that the state owes it to the people of california to make sure that it is recycled properly. >> the department of toxic substance control does not regulate recycling fees. that is up to a different agency. they say that despite the if the change, it will stay the same. but they're bracing for many complaints. >> clearly looking for a fight in the temperatures >> it is going to be spiking higher than we have seen for the entire calendar year. we're talking triple digits in some locations as soon as this sunday. the wind needs to go offshore for that to happen and here's a picture which is a textbook definition of an onshore flow. spilling over the peninsula. right now we have that marine air returning and it will be another cloudy night near the bay but clouds will burn off
