Hazardous material removed from Hearthstone Castle to be sent to AL, OH

OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, work plan for Hearthstone Castle in Danbury doesn't allow Public Works and other crews to be within the building footprint.  Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola says the contractor allowed them to use a completely remote control Brokk machine for a small fee.  The machine, with several attachments, normally costs $300,000 to purchase.  The excavator arm was used to clean the debris inside the castle.  The last loads removed had lead contamination in them, in addition to asbestos.  The material will be transported to an Alabama landfill specially designed for this waste stream. All asbestos waste went to Ohio.
