Garbage pile

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

The fam­ily that owns the Vil­lage of Re­duc­tion in Penn­syl­va­nia is putting the prop­erty up for sale. It’s seek­ing $1.5 mil­lion for the 75-acre prop­erty, which in­cludes 19 sin­gle-fam­ily homes and farm­land and a cen­tury-old one-room school­house. The Amer­i­can Re­duc­tion Com­pany once ran a plant in the vil­lage that pro­cessed tons of garbage from nearby Pitts­burgh, and around 400 com­pany em­ploy­ees once lived there, but Pitts­burgh opened its own trash fa­cil­ity in 1936. In 1948, the vil­lage was sold for $10,000. Its pop­u­la­tion is now around 60, and most of the res­i­dents say they plan to stay there.
