Description
Apparently where old dumpsters go to die - this semi-hidden spot must have around 50 steel dumpsters that are mostly rusted out and empty. It does not appear to be a dump or scrap yard of any kind - all of the bins are empty for the most part. However there are piles of brick, cinder block, old electronics, and rusted propane tanks in certain areas. Not sure what this place was used for exactly or who owns it, it doesn't seemed to be maintained at all and there were no signs of vehicles having been there recently.

If anyone has anymore information on this spots history, please let me know!

I know this place, I use to go there and find stuff as a kid. The last know owner that I recall was Doc Dafoe. Not sure if the family still owns it or not.
