There is a location across from the Richards operation that occasionally gets a trailer backed in. I'm guessing maybe 2 or 3 trucks a day currently use Southard ave. Much more than that would have both Farmingdale and Howell up in arms. Can't see that happening (but I've been wrong before; if you doubt that, talk to my wife. She'll give you a list from each of the 48 years and a couple prior to that).Oh, it's a small plot of land for sure. However, it's already got the industrial zoning, an essentially blank slate, and has rail access, and you could probably expand it if you had the money to buy more land. If it was served more than once a week, keeping the flow of goods moving, I could see the small operation doing decently well. Not to mention it's closer to some warehouses here, and it doesn't have the awkward access situation that Brick Recycling's transloading siding has.
I'm sure a much bigger one could be built somewhere else, but there would be a lot less paper pushing at Gold's former spot.
