Salvage yard's permit revoked

A Pasadena salvage yard has had its county permit revoked because an administrative hearing officer ruled last week that the owner has violated conditions of the permit.

The county Office of Administrative Hearings awarded Thomas W. Redmond a special zoning exception on June 15, 1992, to operate an "automotive dismantling and recycling facility" at 8224 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd.

Robert C. Wilcox, administrative hearing officer, revoked that permit Mr. Redmond had not complied with eight conditions of the permit.

Mr. Wilcox said Mr. Redmond failed to upgrade the 20-year-old facility, avoid designated "Open Spaces" and to fence and landscape portions of the 10 acre site.

Mr. Redmond said yesterday that he will challenge the revocation before the county Board of Appeals.

A recent county law set new restrictions on salvage yards, requiring them to obtain special zoning exceptions. Those yards that cannot comply are to be closed gradually.

Recycling office collecting phone books

The Anne Arundel recycling office will collect phone books for recycling, with help from C&P; Telephone Co. of Maryland, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the parking lot of the Lake Shore Plaza, 4100 Mountain Road, Pasadena.

County residents and businesses will be able to bring their old directories to drop-off sites around the country, including several elementary schools.

Phone books also will be collected by appointment from county hotels.

This is the second year the county has collected phone books for recycling.
