Tire dumping case ends with fines for Williamson business and two illegal dumpers

by WayneTimes.com
October 8, 2011

The case against two men and a Williamson business caught disposing of old tires at two locations in the Town of Sodus has been settled. On Friday (7/29) at 12:08 p.m., two men were observed dumping a truck load of tires on some land on Middle Road in Sodus. The two men then returned to the Williamson Auto Center at 3759 Ridge Road in Williamson, loaded up again and took the tires this time to an abandoned church on Pratt Road in Sodus. Once there, they were observed unloading their cargo of used tires and throwing them inside the abandoned building.

Jackie Gay, age 36, of 13 Belden Avenue in Sodus and Ricky L. Jackson, age 44, of 4 Spring Street in Sodus were both charged with Unlawfully Dumping Solid Waste. On September 7, both men appeared in the Town of Sodus Court and pled guilty. The Town of Sodus Judge fined each defendant $2,500 and assessed each man a surcharge of $150 for the unlawful disposal of waste tires. The charges for Transporting a Regulated Waste Without a NYSDEC Permit were dismissed.

On Monday (9/26), James P. Nacca, of 3759 Route 104 in Williamson, signed an order of consent for relinquishing a regulated waste, waste tires, to a transporter not permitted by DEC. Per the order, he agreed to pay a $200 penalty for violating the New York State Environmental Conservation Law.

Upon hearing of the tire dumping within his town, Sodus Supervisor Steve LeRoy called several people at the DEC in Avon and wanted to know what punishment could be handed out to the source of the tires. “It is only fair that they (Williamson Auto Center) be held as responsible as those two men,” said the Sodus Supervisor.
