LITTLETON (AP) – A Vermont portable toilet company has pleaded guilty to reckless conduct and agreed to pay a fine for transporting toilets containing human waste in New Hampshire.

In July 2013, a New Hampshire state trooper saw liquid leaking from a pickup truck loaded with three portable toilets on Interstate 93 in Littleton. The trooper found the toilets had not been emptied before they were moved.

The company, Calkins Portable Toilet of Danville, Vt., called a septage hauling truck to pump out the waste.

On Tuesday, Calkins entered into negotiated pleas of guilty to three counts of recklessly engaging in conduct that may place another in danger of serious bodily injury. It was fined $6,000, with $1,500 suspended upon five years of good behavior.
