State cites Lempster salvage yard owner

LEMPSTER — Sullivan County Superior Court found James Bonia in violation of a prior consent decree related to his operation of Tri-State Car Crushing, a motor vehicle salvage yard in Lempster, state officials said Friday.

After a hearing, the court prohibited Bonia from ever again owning or operating a motor vehicle salvage yard in the state without prior approval and imposed $84,000 in civil penalties that had previously been suspended, according to a news release issued by Attorney General Joseph A. Foster and the state Department of Environmental Services.

At the hearing, the state offered testimony showing Bonia had not only failed to operate Tri-State Car Crushing in compliance with the prior consent decree, but also had committed new violations of environmental regulations. The state introduced evidence that buried solid waste was discovered on Bonia's property and that he brought solid waste onto the property when he lacked the necessary permit to do so.
