Copart, which operates an auction location adjacent to the site, plans to clear it of tires and expand its vehicle storage and auction operations there.

Safe Tire Disposal Corp. had moved to the location in 1992 as a tire recycler. The business failed, however, leaving behind millions of used tires. Eclipse Renewables bought the site in 2009, but didn’t have a permit to store scrap tires.
