The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection has issued a Massachusetts school a citation for improperly removing asbestos.
According to the Boston Globe, during the asbestos project that occurred in 2009, the cleaning staff removed asbestos tiles by just throwing them into normal trashcans outside.
This occurred while the students were on the campus. It has been said that teachers and students were not exposed to the material, but it is also unknown whether the staff had protective masks on. The containers were then found behind the school.
If you or a loved one has been exposed to asbestos after it was improperly removed, contact us in order to learn more about the material.
