Plea agreement reached for illegal scrap tire collection site

In June 2006, Donald Wayne LaRue, Jr., owner and operator of L & L Auto Salvage located in Antwerp Township, Michigan, pled guilty to scrap tire violations. Under terms of a plea agreement that was reached, Judge Robert Hentchel ordered that LaRue be placed on probation for one year during which time all scrap tires must be properly removed from the site.

A criminal investigation was initiated when DEQ staff determined that LaRue had improperly accumulated an estimated 20,000 scrap tires and was operating an unregistered scrap tire collection site without the required bonding. These misdemeanor offenses carry a potential penalty of 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $10,000.
