From coast-to-coast car buyers have experienced the effects of declining commodity pricing, even here in Green, Fairlawn, and Cuyahoga Falls. The cash for wrecked cars business is hopefully that prices rebound post-election throughout Medina, Springfield Township, and Kenmore. The simplicity involved in junk car removal in North Akron, Sharon Center, and Mogadore has kept the process moving. In the meanwhile, the price for a damaged car will remain low in Stow, Monroe Falls, and East Akron. Where is the closest scrap my car site in the Summit County region?
“The junk is left over from a decades-old auto dump that was an official city operation after the 1964 earthquake and the spot of an illegal dump for years since. Just over the ridge from what is the Kincaid Park Track, was a rocky pit back in the early 60s, per the AK Dept. of Fish & Game Refuge Manager. Post-earthquake, they used the gravel area to dump cars ruptured by the earthquake, smashing them and pushing them over the bluff, along with unused sand from the gravel pit. It was formally closed in the 70s. Helicopters make trips back and forth over the bluff, hauling cargo nets and bags filled with debris to receptacles. Meehan says that debris removed in these efforts had sat there for (2) years because the usual method of removal was to transport it over frozen marshland & ice, and Anchorage’s milder winters have not been frigid enough for that to occur.
The Legislature funded $100,000 for the cleanup in 2011. Community volunteering working most of it hadn’t been needed directly for the cleanup. Initial estimates evaluating the dump and potential pollutants, along with helicopter lifts had been funded by the appropriation. Local support & donated equipment have led much of what has occurred since cleanup began (9) years ago. Meehan says at least 2,000 autos were dumped there over a decade of the area being known as a sanctioned car dump. The latest cleanup has removed more than 100 autos, 2,000 tires, and about tons of assorted junk, like refrigerators and stoves.
The last of the cars, which were buried in the bluff, will stay. Meehan said. “They will decay and turn back into iron & rust, and descendants who are here won’t even realize there used to be a dump here.” He said the engineering checked for contaminants, and didn’t find anything, so it’s likely that most of the vehicles were flushed of their fuel & oil before being crushed. While many of the cars are still visible in the bluff, they’ll stay there until becoming a problem, or are eroded. Meehan says it would likely cost millions dollars to excavate the entire bluff and remove them, and that they shouldn’t hurt anything overall. There are some regions where erosion could cause the cars to fall down into the marshlands of the Coastal Wildlife Refuge area. If funding became available, the areas could be stabilized & revegetated. The refuge is an yearly stopover for many waterfowl & shorebirds.” The full article is available here.
