LIDO BEACH -  

Residents are frustrated over debris dumped in their neighborhood in Sandy's aftermath.
 
As Long Beach continues to clean up after Sandy, hundreds of tons of debris are piling up in the neighboring community of Lido Beach.
 
Nassau County officials chose an open space near Nickerson Beach as a temporary staging area, but neighbors are growing concerned that the tons of trash could pose a threat to public health.
 
A spokesperson for Nassau Executive Ed Mangano says the county will begin shredding the debris next week. Then, that material will be packaged and transported to dump sites, most of which are not on Long Island. She says they expect to finish the job within the next few weeks.
