One of my projects right now is to help a guy in my neighborhood to clean up something similar. Picture 1 to 2 acres of scrap metal waist high.
He is disabled and cannot do it himself. I stepped up and have agreed to work on it as I have time and Code Enforcement has agreed to drop the almost $18,000 in fines for having an illegal junkyard if he cleans it up.
They asked me when they could return to see real progress and about fell over when I said 4 to 6 weeks. I told them they needed to look in the woods in the back of the property because this wasn't going to be a weekend project.
So far we have hauled over 2,000 pounds of aluminum, and about 1,000 pounds of steel, tranformers, brass, copper, computer parts and other stuff. It will be at least a month before we can even think about tackling the three vehicles, lawn mowers, tractors, and other stuff.
What took 28 years to amass it going to take some time to get rid of.
