While we already knew it was time to stick a fork in the Amerigas location in Wyandanch 'cause its done, we can now officially take the leftovers out of the fridge and dump it in the trash - the property now sports those feared, distressing, and depressing signs which are far too common on Long Island: "Available: Metro Realty" (I can't blame Metro for anything - they are merely carrion-eaters who scavenge the remains of failed businesses). Signs must have been posted after tj48 visited, there is one on the office and a few on the fences. No problem, we know lots of other propane companies are lining up to serve Long Island customers and offer competition in the market place like Paraco...oops, no they brought out Amerigas to eliminate a competitor. Wonderful.

The former Amerigas facility still has its siding in place although some of the structures have been demolished. The yard now has quite a few semi trailers occupying it.

Amerigas has been leaving Long Island.The former Amerigas facility in Wyandanch is owned by Island Container. Island container and Combined container are in the same facility in Wyandanch. Whether or not Island Container will get cars at the former Amerigas facility is unknown. Greg nice post on the scrap site. Was waiting for this one. When the east end garbage boys shipped out their waste on Elm's lead it looked like a disaster waiting to happen. Remember the C&D from Roberto Clemente park has to be shipped out by the town. It would make sense to ship it out of the old Emjay Environmental site. Politics at its best.
