The Site consists of multiple buildings set on a 30-acre property zoned for manufacturing, and is currently inactive. The northern third of the property is occupied by the Charles Batchelder facility and the southern two thirds of the property is occupied by Pine Swamp. Large amounts of the northern third of the property are occupied by buildings and paved areas. The northern part of the property is where approximately 20 piles of the dross material reside. There are also two large piles of the baghouse dust within the buildings. Charles Batchelder & Company Inc., the current owner, operated an on-site aluminum recycling/smelting facility between 1947 and 1987 at which time it went bankrupt.
