The Vermont attorney general says a Mount Tabor man has been sentenced to two years of probation and must pay $29,000 in cleanup costs for illegally burying 23 55-gallon drums of hazardous materials– including waste oil — on his property.
David McLellan was sentenced last week after being convicted of three felonies: illegal storage or disposal of hazardous waste, illegal storage or disposal of solid waste and illegal release of hazardous materials.
He received a suspended sentenced of one to three years in prison.
McLellan was charged after an investigation by the offices of the attorney general and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources. The waste was found in 2008.
