2 plead guilty to illegal asbestos removal

The defendants admitted that through Deuteron Capital L.L.C., doing business as South Street Fillit Recycling of Riverside, they illegally removed asbestos without a license and illegally disposed of it at the Zurbrugg site.

“These two men showed an utter disregard for the health and safety of the workers they hired, as well as the residents living near this site,” Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman said. “We will not tolerate contractors who ignore our laws and put the public in danger to turn a profit.”

The state’s investigation revealed that the men had unlicensed workers, including inmates from Clinton House, a work-release halfway house in Trenton, remove asbestos from sections of the hospital. The defendants directed the workers to bury bags of asbestos in the ground and dump bags of asbestos on a boiler room floor to make it look as if the building had been vandalized. The workers did not wear protective gear.

Rizzo and Kouvaras are scheduled to be sentenced April 25.
