Sept. 13 — A Long Island, N.Y., man is being charged after allegedly dumping more than 40 yards of construction and demolition debris on state property, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation said.
Everal “Charlie” Chotan, 59, of Uniondale, N.Y., faces five misdemeanor charges of unlawful disposal of solid waste, operating an unpermitted solid waste facility, criminal mischief, depositing solid waste on state property and disposing of unwholesome substances on a roadway, the state said.
The charges were filed after the state received a complaint on Sept. 7 of somebody dumping and burying debris on property owned by New York State Parks and maintained by the New York State Department of Transportation in Uniondale.
Chotan owns a paving business and works construction jobs on the side. He has regularly used the property and has stored equipment at the site and adjacent to the property for years, the state said.
State environmental conservation officers reported that they found several dump truck loads of construction debris that was exposed and partially buried, the state said.
