Jerry Antonacci and David Antonacci - Crown Container

Resistance to Anti-Corruption Regulations

Like fellow kingpins the Bellinos and Tristanis, the Antonaccis are members of “New Yorkers for Responsible Waste Management,” a new trade association of private haulers opposed to City initiatives to reform the industry. Like other NYFRWM members, the Antonaccis have long sought to avoid scrutiny by regulators.  Crown Waste and Gerald Antonacci were among the haulers who unsuccessfully sued the Giuliani administration in an attempt to avoid criminal background checks and regulation of the private waste industry in 1996.
