Kansas recycling firm faces sentencing for hazardous wastes

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A recycling facility for plastics and electronics has agreed to pay restitution after admitting it stored hazardous wastes such as paints and solvents at its premises in El Dorado.

Integrated Plastic Solutions faces sentencing Wednesday in federal court in Wichita on one count of unlawful storage of hazardous waste. Its plea agreement requires the company to pay restitution in the amount of $118,807.

The company pleaded guilty in June after striking a deal with prosecutors for three years’ probation and no fine.

Its owner, Sean M. Riley, was sentenced last month to 18 months of unsupervised probation. Its general manager, Brian J. Riley, received three years of probation in May. The court also ordered the two men to pay $118,807 in restitution.
