Owner ordered to clean up Milton junkyard

Milton, Vermont - February 11, 2011

The owner of a Milton junkyard has been ordered to clean up contamination from the operation.

The junkyard, owned by Gilbert Rhoades, has been in existence since 1972. But a judge found that between 2007 and 2009 it was operated without a license. The judge also ruled that Rhoades is responsible for the release of hazardous materials at the site, including lead, and Rhoades is liable for cleaning up the mess.

Another hearing will be held to determine what penalties Rhoades must pay.
