Dick Barone, played by Joe Lisi, owned and and operated Barone sanitation - a front business for the Soprano crew that also handled their legitimate garbage hauling routes. In 1999 the Triborough Towers route was subject to a bidding war between Barone and Kolar Brothers Sanitation. Dick Barone was part of the crews discussions about the problem and was at Satriale's when Christopher Moltisanti took it upon himself to deal with the issue and murder Emil Kolar. Chris' action led to the Kolar Bros. withdrawing their bid which Dick was happy to report to Tony.
In 2000, Dick attended the Garbagemen's Ball alongside "Waste Management Consultant" Tony Soprano.
Dick died a well-respected businessman in 2006 from Lou Gehrig's disease. His funeral was attended by many members of the Soprano crime family. Dick was survived by his wife, Helen, and son, Jason. Following his death, Barone Sanitation was bought out by Lupertazzi crime family firm, Cinelli Sanitation.
