A man renting a house in Islip Terrace, which contains a trailer of construction waste containing asbestos, said he could reach a tentative agreement with the landlord to inspect the waste and add it to the cart.

Sirico said he had agreed to allow the landlord to open the trailer on the property next Tuesday as part of the first steps to assess the trailer and other waste and finally move it.

It is unclear whether the Suffolk district law firm, which has already charged environmental crimes under the Flag of Operation PayDirt, is investigating the remains of the Islip Terrace.
