Park clean-up to get underway


Long Island officials are working to clean-up their parks after a number of sites were found to be dumping grounds for toxic material. 

The Town of Islip is beginning the clean up process next week at the Police Athletic League fields in Central Islip and the Bay Shore Marina where they will clear out areas discovered to have asbestos. 

The town ordered a review of its 100 parks after a Suffolk County District Attorney probe was launched in April examining illegal dumping in Brentwood’s Roberto Clemente Park.  It led investigators to several other infected sites.
