More bad news came in the form of bad paychecks to former Page County Landfill employees.

"We trusted them and they betrayed our trust," said a former NWS employee.

The trust that when you get a paycheck there are funds to back it. For the past two weeks - that wasn't the case for many former page county landfill workers.

"You expect your money to be good when you get paid every friday well when you go to your bank and you've got 600 dollars of overdraft charges then you really feel violated and angered," said former NWS employee.

The workers say they were not notified there was a problem with the checks.

"It makes me feel cheated because you work really hard in the company just picking up trash and stuff like that so i mean through all kinds of weather," said a former NWS employee.

Officials with NWS, former operators of the landfill, say they don't know what caused the problem. But they realize how important these checks are to each person.

"When people have their paychecks many of them have some could have a child support issue or taxes involved from different angles there's a lot of important issues here," said Scott Sedwick, NWS general manager.

N.W.S. tells TV-3 that they will get the money for their paychecks and for any fees due to the bad checks; but no word on when.
