The site consists of the Byron Salvage Yard property and Dirk's Farm property. The contiguous properties are located in rural Ogle County in Northern Illinois, about halfway between the cities of Byron and Oregon, Illinois. In the 1960s, the Byron Salvage Yard was operated as a junkyard where miscellaneous waste and debris were brought for disposal. Disposal activities continued until about 1972. Drums of electroplating wastes and other materials (oil sludges, paint sludges, cutting wheels, solvents, and scrap metal) were disposed of at the Byron Salvage Yard. (more...)
