Four Men and a NJ Demolition Company Charged with Dumping Asbestos

June 21, 2011 – Federal prosecutors have charged a central New York farmer, a New Jersey demolition company, its owner and two other men with dumping 30,000 tons of asbestos-filled construction debris on farmland near New York’s Mohawk River in 2006.  The men allegedly planned to continue dumping the debris in wetlands and the River’s flood plain over five years using a fake state permit.

Earlier this year, another company involved in the dumping conspiracy pleaded guilty to conspiracy in the case and agreed to pay $500,000 and comply with environmental laws.  Another man involved in the case pleaded guilty in 2009 and faces up to five years in prison.
