Westchester, N.Y., Trash Hauler to Pay Over $2M and Serve Prison Time for Fraud Scheme

Stephen DiSalvo was charged on 40 counts of fraud and theft.

Stephen DiSalvo, a Florida native, has been charged on 40 counts of fraud and theft and sentenced to three to six years in prison for a scheme involving ATNM Corporation. He’s also forfeited $1 million and has been ordered to pay more than $2 million with his codefendants Christopher C. and Christopher E. Leggio.

Between 2013 and 2015, DiSalvo and his businesses partners altered several hundred dump tickets to reflect a higher tonnage of solid waste being transported. The altered tickets were attached to ATNM invoices and sent to a hauling broker, who ended up paying more than $1 million of unnecessary costs to ATNM during the scheme.
