Code enforcement officials removed the mounds of rubbish, which required 10 garbage trucks, from the home at 57 Daisy Dr. in Mastic on Monday. The home had been condemned on June 24, officials said.
According to Brookhaven Town officials, John W. Mallgren, who owns the property, and his son John R. Mallgren, a tenant there, apparently allowed 42 tons of tires, car parts, hoses and other trash to pile up on the residential lot, which is also the site of a single-family home.
John W. Mallgren is being ordered to pay nearly $9000 dollars for the garbage removal. His son will likely be ordered to pay $10,000 in fines, officials said.
PIX News reached out to the Mallgren residence for further comment, but a phone call was not immediately returned.
