ROCHESTER TOWNSHIP, BEAVER COUNTY - The junkyard in Rochester Township contains an estimated 50,000 abandoned tires. The cost of clean-up under the DEP?s waste tire program is $75,000, or $1.50 per tire. The DEP says tire piles are a fertile breeding ground for mosquitoes, which can carry the West Nile Virus.
