Smith said his junkyard includes approximately 18 acres on each side of the brook, but in order for him to remove 36 acres of material, he would need another 36 acres to deposit it on.
Smith said his “long-term goal” is to “totally get out of the scrap business, clean it up and comply with state law.” But he is basically “a one-man show” and doesn’t have the money to do it, he said.

“Mr. Smith’s not doing anything,” Bassano said. “He’s only getting rid of the tires he can sell.”[/quote]
