Toxic Debris Mystery on Long Island Deepens With 2nd Dump Site By Marc Santia and Greg Cergol| NBC New York May 14, 2014Authorities believe toxic debris has been dumped at a second Long Island location after 32,000 tons of asbestos-contaminated soil was mysteriously discovered at a park.
A 30-foot pile of debris has been found in a vacant lot on Route 111 in Central Islip.
