The director of an “equestrian arena” turned asbestos dump site in Sydney’s north-west, has been charged by the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA).

At least 44,000 tonnes of asbestos-contaminated material was discovered at a property owned by Arcadia Investment Holdings’ David Levy on Geelans Road at Arcadia last year.

Mr Mouawad is facing three prosecutions for allegedly polluting land, unlawful waste transport and causing the Arcadia site to be used as an unlawful waste facility.
