Lake Shore site yields tons of trash

When county workers hauled 112 tons of trash out of the future Lake Shore Athletic Complex last month, nearly 80 percent of it went to the Millersville Landfill.

The rest was recycled. Almost 13 tons of scrap metal were plucked from the woods and scrub that cover the 127-acre site, and sent to United Iron and Metal in South Baltimore, county spokeswoman Louise Hayman said.

Another 13 tons of tires were sent to Joseph Smith and Sons Inc., a Prince George's County recycler, Ms. Hayman said.

The amount of recycled materials might have been higher. But Susan Combs, the county's recycling coordinator, said the glass, steel and aluminum containers found on the site were either too corroded or contami nated with dirt.
