Police and the Environmental Protection Authority are investigating Aussie Earth Movers owner Paul Mouawad over an alleged illegal dumping of tonnes of asbestos.

In July 2016, a building site on Abercrombie Street at Darlington allegedly paid Aussie Earth Movers to remove 1,400 tonnes of asbestos material.

It’s believed Mouawad was paid more than $225,000 for the job, but the asbestos allegedly never arrived at the Eastern Creek tip.

Police have charged him with four counts of dishonestly obtain financial advantage by deception.

Now, the EPA have brought two charges against Mouawad and his company for knowingly supplying false and misleading information about waste.

The ‘tier one’ offences carry a maximum penalty of $240,000, 18 months imprisonment or both for the individual.

One of his subcontractors, Sam Ali, has also been charged by the EPA over the same incident.
