Local Bio-Recovery Firm Cleans Up Anthrax In
Toledo, OH. November 8, 2001: It started with crime and trauma scene remediation, bird and rodent droppings,
uninhabitable dwellings and toxic mold abatement. Now you can add
anthrax to the list. Bio-Recovery Services' owner, Fred Schutt,
returned from Manhattan last Monday after a grueling three-day and night stretch
of decontaminating anthrax spores. The building, in midtown Manhattan, is part
of Rockefeller Center on the Avenue of Americas. It is home to the New York Post
and Fox News, among others. Bio-Recovery Services provided labor and additional
equipment, such as HEPA filtered negative pressure air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums,
respirators, cyclone foggers, and decontamination foam licensed by the Sandia
National Laboratories in New Mexico.
Mr. Schutt worked closely with Ron Gospodarski of Bio-Recovery Corporation of
Woodside, NY, who also performed the decontamination work for ABC Studios in
Manhattan. Both are members of the American Bio-Recovery Association.
Gospodarski is a Past President and Schutt holds a chair on the Board of
Directors. Mr. Schutt also received a Proclamation for Citizen of the Month from
the City of Toledo's Mayor, Carty Finkbeiner and gratitude from New York City
Mayor, Rudy Gulliani.
