El Dorado firm to pay fine, serve probation over mishandling of chemicals

An El Dorado plastics recycling company will pay $107,612 in restitution and fines and serve three years of probation for mishandling waste chemicals from 2009 to 2013, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Wednesday.

Integrated Plastic Solutions pleaded guilty to a count of unlawful storage of a hazardous waste for keeping flammable and explosive materials, including paints and solvents, and other chemicals without a permit, Grissom said.

In addition to the monetary penalties and probation, a judge on Wednesday ordered Integrated Plastic Solutions to participate in a compliance and ethics program, Grissom said. The company also will pay $400 for a special assessment, he said.

The company’s owners, Andover residents Brian and Sean Riley, were previously convicted and sentenced in connection with the case, Grissom said.

Brian Riley was given three years of probation for negligent exposure to a hazardous air pollutant and ordered to pay $118,807 in restitution.

Sean Riley is serving 18 months of probation for aiding and abetting. He is paying the same restitution amount.
