Marion Road property cleaned up after health code violations

Sep 20, 2017

Wareham Police, the Department of Environmental Protection and the town’s Health Agent responded to 93 Marion Road recently after learning that the property owner violated several health codes.

“He was operating a junkyard in a residential neighborhood,” Health Agent Bob Ethier told the Board of Health on Wednesday.

Ethier said neighbors complained of work being done on cars at the property. He noted an inspection revealed open oil and antifreeze containers at the site, and the property owner had illegally parked several cars across the street in a town-owned vacant lot. Several piles of rubbish, consisting of metal, plastic and yard waste, were also found.

Since then, the cars have been moved, the vacant lot roped off and the property owner is working to clean the site, said Ethier.
