Pittsfield Man Fined For Illegal Asbestos Removal
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
01:25PM / Friday, July 21, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — DEP has fined a city man for illegally removing asbestos from a home on Circular Avenue.   The Department of Environmental Protection fined Robert Clum $27,100 for removing the material from 65 Circular Avenue in August of last year. The work, removing and disposing of asbestos pipe insulation, potentially exposed the residents to asbestos fibers, DEP says. Clum does not have a contractor's license to the work nor did he notified the state regarding it.   DEP says Clum was hired by the homeowner to remove the insulation from the basement of the two-family home. He did the work without techniques to prevent the air-borne release of asbestos, DEP said.
