Just another hard-hat Monday on Strathern Street in Sun Valley. Scrap-yard machines moan in the dreary haze. A big rig jettisons debris into a giant pit filled with concrete skeletons of old buildings. Across the way, close to a methane plant, a young man in Bermuda shorts whacks golf balls on a driving range built directly over a closed dump. Wait. Golf?

Just another hard-hat Monday on Strathern Street. Scrap-yard machines moan into the dreary haze. A big rig jettisons debris into a giant pit filled with concrete skeletons of old buildings. Across the way, close to a methane plant, a young man in Bermuda shorts whacks golf balls onto a driving range built directly over a closed dump. Golf? In Sun Valley?

For at least three hours a day, Scott Tignac dons hard hat and Redwing steel-toed boots, hops into his Ford F-350 pickup truck and observes the bustling waste disposal and recycling activities around the 209-acre site.
