BALTIMORE (AP) - A supervisor at a Baltimore landfill has pleaded guilty to soliciting and accepting bribes from trash haulers to use the facility without paying fees.

Fifty-five-year-old William Nemec Sr. of Baltimore also pleaded guilty to conspiracy and stealing scrap metal from a landfill Monday in federal court in Baltimore.

According to his plea agreement, Nemec and other employees at the Quarantine Road Landfill accepted $100 bribes from large haulers for each truckload of trash dumped so they could avoid paying fees.

Prosecutors say the scheme cost Baltimore more than $6 million in revenue.

Nemec, who has agreed to pay restitution, faces a maximum of five years in prison for conspiracy and 10 years in prison for bribery at sentencing for Nov. 17.
