When the story first surfaced, they made it sound like someone dropped a tone of twisted steel and wreckage on a lot .....
I don't see pics of the trash, but I also don't know if they were simply not taken. There are tons of these lots in the PA/NJ/NY area. They might look like the overgrown grass at first, but are quickly used to dump. They can fill up with 40 tons of trash in a matter of weeks. I have seen contractors dump truckloads in lots like that. People throwing their garbage not taken by city sanitation, this is VERY common around the NY/NJ/PA area. When I lived in Queens a few years back, my neighbor was doing a minor remodel, and ordered a dumpster (the large metal one, so a 9 yard maybe?) They delivered it at about 5:00PM. The next morning, we woke up, it was half full with trash. An old couch, old chipped up concrete, drywall scrap, etc. Those google images mean nothing.
