Attias Property Owner Cleans Up Lot, Roadways

Islip Town officials react quick to feedback regarding litter and garbage on Broadway Avenue in Sayville.

Broadway Avenue in Sayville, near the now vacant Attias Flea Market, should be looking cleaner and less littered as Islip Town officials report the property owner has been busy getting rid of debris left behind by vendors as they vacated the building in the past few weeks.

As Patch reported earlier this week, the roadway was lined with garbage and the parking lot boasted more debris despite the presence of several large dumpsters.

After receiving an email from Patch inquiring about cleanup responsibilities, Islip Town dispatched a sanitation inspector to the site that day and contacted the property owner.

"Our DEC [Department of Environmental Conservation] staff has reported that both Sunrise Highway and Broadway Ave. have been cleaned by the owner of the flea market.  He is also working on cleaning up the flea market property," said Inez Birbiglia, town spokesperson, in an e-mail to Patch.

She added that town officials would continue to monitor the area.

Hopefully whoever occupies this building next will keep it clean. That entire place, inside as well as out was disgustingly filthy.

The Town of Islip should be ashamed of themselves. The fence along Broadway across from Petite Fleur Nursing Home is disgusting. Where are the Town Highway workers? When Nolan was the Supervisor, he had welfare people picking up litter They were SWEP workers and they did a terrific job. I guess things are back to normal now that the GOP has control of the town board.
