BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Burlington investment group has agreed to pay a $70,000 fine for violating state rules for handling hazardous waste.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/1mMsPbY) the fine was connected to a property owned by Sisters and Brothers Investment Group, which includes five siblings of the Handy family. It’s described in court filings as a facility for the storage and disposal of hazardous materials and wastes. Violations included a waste oil spill.

The group hired an environmental company that removed 2,155 gallons of waste oil and solvents.

Officials said the fine was a penalty for mishandling hazardous waste. There’s been no environmental damage.

Sisters and Brothers owns convenience stores, commercial properties and other real estate, including Handy’s Service Center and a Shell station, where the family began its business in 1969.
